Sir John A. MacDonald & Black Walnut Public Schools

Elevation studies

The projects for Sir John A. MacDonald and Black Walnut Public Schools in Markham, Ontario presented the challenge of customizing a prototype design developed by the York Region District School Board for its new elementary schools. As a technologist at Moffet & Duncan Architects (Toronto), I addressed this challenge by developing a series of exterior elevation options in SketchUp and modifying the massing and positioning of architectural elements to engage the schools’ specific sites. I followed up by assisting the principal architect through the design development and construction document phases of the projects.
