students with balloonStudio One showcases student exhibition

On November 30, 2018, the first Architectural Engineering Studio One was officially opened and guests were invited to view the state-of-the-art classroom, studio and makers space. First-year AE students were also invited to showcase their final projects as part of a student exhibition at the opening.

The final project - a 3D model of a bunkee - was designed for use by hikers/bikers arriving at Columbia Lake via the Trans Canada Trail. Attention was focused on the human impacts and potentials of light, air, view, and connection to the site and surrounding nature. Floor plans and 3D illustrataions were first rendered digitally before being meticulously constructed using paper, cardboard, wood and plastic. Each group presented their bunkee to a panel of judges and students, detailing the design process and functionality of the structure.

Guests were invited to vote for their favourite sketches, and Carrie Zhu (winner) and Harry Jiang (runner-up) took home the People's Choice Awards.
