The program called for developing and re-working an industrial site in Halifax, Nova Scotia to create a school for students to study a variety of mixed media. Creating a sense of community and unity within the site was the main focus of the project. Grid lines are projected onto the site to create a mixture of dynamic and controlled geometries. Existing sheds on the site were sliced to enhance the views of the harbor and create new circulation paths. These "slices" also serve as the main structural ribs for the New Media School building in which the programmatic volumes seem to "float".
