Through a small grant provided by the Ontario Public Interest Group Guelph (or OPIRG-Guelph), I designed and published 1000 copies of this Green Map for university students. The Green Map System is a community map-making process, that uses accessible tools and universal icons to identify green living sites, and natural, cultural and social resources. I chose to focus on only the downtown and near the university, and tried to show diverse places that represented the Guelph I knew. Some of the sites I mapped were foot bridges, special trees, green businesses, walking trails, boulevard gardens, wetlands and community gardens. Check out http://www.greenmap.org/ to be inspired by community map makers around the world! This was put together with aerial maps, and Adobe Illustrator.
After a conversation with friend and avid bike rider about not having dry places for kids to park their bikes in our rainy season, I came up with a low budget concept for a covered bike rack for Roberts Creek Elementary. This one I drew up in Sketch-up.
While working with a local Landscape Architect, we developed this planting plan. This was drafted in VectorWorks and includes a proposed veggie garden area, plantings to create privacy from alley, eco-paving for parking spots, and a gathering space for outdoor events.
Inspired by the client who is a contemporary industrial designer, I came up with this design palette for her front garden. Using photos of plants from my own collection as well as images collected from the web, I was better able to describe the vision to client. This was given in conjunction with a hand-drawn plan-view concept sketch.
