    The objective of the Urban Site Technology course at the Uni-versity of Toronto was to de-sign a wall in detail. My inspira-tion was drawn from espaliered trees and Native trail markers. My wall, is not built, but grown over a period of three years. Wil-low whips are planted and pulled by biodegradable twine as they grow. The natural tension of the plant and its tendency to grow upwards towards the sun is ex-ploited and an amorphous wave form is the resulting structure. In the first iteration, a deck is built with predetermined notch points and predetermined twine lengths and angles. This results in a relatively specific form. The real beauty will result from he nature of the material though, the plants ability to adapt to environmental changes. The fi-nal form will be one that is obvi-ously constructed by the hands of man, with only subtle markers on the ground to provide hints as to how the shape arose.

    Materials _ Salix petiolaris [Meadow Willow] _ Meadow Willow is a native species that is fast growing, flexible, strong, and not overly large. It grows 1 or more metres per year on average to a height of between 3 and 8 metres total.

    Strategy _ willow structures are becoming common features of childrens play areas in the form of woven tunnels. Im inspired by this as well as native trail mark-ers throughout North America, Espaliered fruit trees in the Netherlands, and the grown root bridges of Cherra-punji in India. A true living wall, this is grown entirely with the aid of biodegradable twine tied and pulled at spe-cific vectors to create an amorphous wall formed from living trees.

    The anchors where twine vectors were once placed remain in the ground as a scar of production. A clue as to how this wall came to be.

    Alternative Production Method

    As a more affordable, more flexible alternative, the coded deck is removed and the willows are shaped as the builder sees fit. Twine is tied to rebar that is hammered into the ground. These can be colour coded based on phases or can be left ambiguous. They can remain, they can be removed. The final form is less rigid and determined and will be left up to the one who constructs the wall.

    A few simple rules of thumb exist for DIY con-struction including the potential flexibility over time of each tree as well as a scheduled main-tenance regime.

  • 2012 - 2 WeeksEvergreen Brickworks to be constructed Spring 2013

    The garden located near the eastern parkinglot at the Ever-green Brickworks is in what was not forseen as a prominent en-trance to the site, yet is now the gateway for many major events. With this in mind, I was asked to redesign the garden within a tight budget. Of three proposals, the concept selected was that of a showcase garden, whereby a piece of the Brickworks industri-al heritage in the form of an old machine, is displayed outside of the buildings. This machine is the cetrepoint of a red-orange-yel-low planting scheme that hints upon the fire and heat that fu-eled the Brickworks and the City of Toronto. An earth-bag wall stabilizes a small hill and allows space for reclaimed barn beam benches along the edge near-est the kilns building, allowing events to spill out into the sum-mer night air.

    Completed as part of the Detail Design course at ECA, this project evolved from conceptual design to a set of tender drawings. My design incorporated a terraced community garden into a 5m level change between the build-ings of a residential complex in Stockbridge. Using natural and local materials and construction methods was the emphasis of my research and design. The de-sign feature is a set of drystone retaining walls that are bound around a zig-zagging staircase. The project involved research of materials, construction methods, and presentation styles.
