University of Toronto Art Centre, Toronto, ON, CA, John H. Daniels Digital Fabrication Lab Tech

The Digital Fabrication Lab at John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture is a vibrant, cutting edge research center that offers a wide range of tools for students to bring their designs to life. As a fabrication lab tech, I had an opportunity to learn first hand the operation of 3D Printers, Laser Cutters and Plotters. This job taught me how to work with these machines, their technological aspects and their requirements for maintenance and repair. Another aspect of working at the Fabrication Lab was working directly with large numbers of students, as one of my responsibilities was to train and qualify Undergraduate and Master’s students on Laser Cutter operation. Computer knowledge was a vital aspect of this job, as I had to provide partial IT support to students struggling with things such as computer software, machine configuration, compatibility issues, etc.

Atelier RZLBD is a boutique art & architecture practice based in Toronto. Working at RZLBD endorsed my knowledge in developing construction drawings, for preliminary and pre-design concepts, including schematic designs, floor plans, elevations, building sections, fabrication details, lighting and floor finishing plans. My list of responsibilities includes creation and design of mill-work packages for custom design furniture, specified interior design requirements, and evaluated project estimates in accordance to client budget. The mill-work packages include plans, sections, elevation and 3D visualization of every space (room) that contained custom furniture or cabinetry designed by the atelier. I compose 3D renders in Revit and Rhino for in-office use and client's visualization to ensure that work is aligned with the clients understanding of project details. It is required from me to conduct elevation/facade studies, sun studies, massing studies, and assembling these into a presentation packages for clients.
