NOTABLE ACCOMPLISHMENTS
bohmLAB research group and exhibitions Three friends and I created bohmLAB—the first student-led research group at Waterloo Architecture Cambridge—in order to further the independent research for each of our theses, which collectively revolved around the topic of responsive architecture. We collected equipment (like Arduinos, projectors, and an Emotiv EEG headset), shared space and ideas with each other, posted to a public blog, ran two open houses and two independent exhibitions, and wrote a constitution for future members of the group. bohmLAB is named in honour Thomas Seebohm, one of our late computing professors. (Faculty Advisor: Maya Przbyiski, adjunct professor maya.przybylski@gmail.com). Wayfinding book The pedestrian survey I conducted for the Wayfinding project, led by associate professor Donald McKay, has been incorporated into a book documenting the entire Wayfinding project. I am a co-author of this book and my survey, “Mapping the Campus (Using Locative Media),” revealed previously-unseen patterns in pedestrian movement on campus which were incorporated into the final proposal. (Project Director: Donald McKay, associate professor 416.458.9675). rareSiting: Springbank Commons Ideas Competition In the spirit of Musagetes and SIG@Waterloo, the design of this new home for both groups facilitates social interaction within the building as well as between these organizations and the local community. (First Place Team: Liana Bresler, Sarah Neault, Allan Wilson). Graduate survey Fellow graduate student Liana Bresler and I prepared a graduate program “by the numbers” information document and conducted an anonymous graduate program, facilities, and services survey with the goal of initiating constructive student participation in the present and future directions of the School.
