I noticed that this blog is constantly evolving as different stages of my life take shape and unfolds. Since starting grad school, I've been involved in some really cool projects, and the posts here may be more school/architecture related than anything else from now on.
At the end of last year, I was invited to participate in an ice installation at the Musée National des Beaux-Arts du Québec. I was fortunate enough to be working close colleagues from Waterloo as well as some really amazing people from the Bartlett. Our design involved casted ice panels as structural modules to create a self-supporting ice sculpture. Because Quebec City warmed up so much a few days before our installation, we had to work in a freezer trailer truck in -20 temperature. It was quite the experience. Luckily temperature dropped to -15 the day we started piecing things together, and after a very frustrating night with very little sleep everything worked and the installation was magically standing on its own just like the way we had imagined.
We spent a week in Quebec City but I only managed to take a few lomo photos of the actual place, hopefully I will get those developed soon.
