The skills I use today were developed through a series of design studios in both undergraduate and graduate programs, as well as study abroad terms and a Masters Degree Project, which focused on the development of a greenfield site in Canmore, AB. The projects included large-scale comprehensive greenfield development design, as well as small-scale, detailed site design. The large master planning projects looked at issues such as environmental performance, cultural amenities, infrastructure, urban design, planning, scale, massing, and design aesthetic. These large projects typically included more focused design projects, like public space design, streetscape design, building frontages, landscaping, and developing well-designed public space. All of the projects helped develop a knowledge of how to organize public space to create comfortable places that people will want to be in and experience.
