Year End Show
2020



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.

Zero Energy Building Design Project




As a finalist in the Solar Decathlon Design Competition, this project encapsulated various design strategies to not only achieve a low-energy office building design, but also excel in all 10 Contests that are evaluated by the competition. The proposed building at the southeast corner of Gerrard St. and Mutual St. was comprised of three levels of office space above a ground floor for retail with underground bicycle parking. Providing occupants with a workspace that promotes productivity and wellbeing was an integral part of the design, which was achieved through passive daylighting strategies supplemented by circadian lighting, biophilic elements including exposed timber and the use of interior plants, and well ventilated open offices. Some of the project highlights include mass timber construction, circadian lighting systems, ground-source heat pumps with a DOAS system, a skylight with an atrium below to maximize natural light penetration, rainwater collection and filtration, and photovoltaic arrays on the roof. The team was awarded second place in the Office Building division of the competition this year.
