Year End Show

For our inaugural online exhibition, the Ryerson Department of Architectural Science showcased our 2020 Year End Show, featuring our best student work. At DAS, we encourage students to test boundaries, explore new possibilities, and apply their skill to prevailing issues present within their evolving surroundings. This annual exhibition presented the culmination of the 2019-2020 academic term, showcasing the impressive and cutting-edge works of our top students in all four years of study and at the graduate level.

This project shows a possible future for a portion of the Allen Gardens site in a Rentist future (inequality and abundance).

rentism has focused the world’s economy to the sale of intellectual property. tangible objects are produced by a replicator through code. a desire has grown for what the replicator cannot replicate; the real.

at the rehabilitation centre for reality, residences are greeted by a familiar environment; they work where they live. they are given a choice of four occupations; farmer, sewer, maker, cook. staff educate and assist patients in their physical labour. compensation is given as access to our other amenities; the park, the museum, the recreation centre. to create a friendly environment, architectural typologies are defined by archetypical forms. our generations desire for complexity in design, due to the abundant capabilities of the replicator is met through materiality.
a super material, self-supporting, insulating and service providing deforms the archetypical architecture through the nature of its web-like characteristics. homes are hung above the work space to provide residences the comfort of privacy. like physical labour, real-life socializing will be exhaustive. However, full rehabilitation requires socialization. the most difficult, yet most transformative task to perform, is at the centre of each residential community; the social space.
