LiUNA Local 506 Training Centre

The LiUNA Local 506 Training Centre was designed to meet the growing demand for trade apprenticeship programs, skills training, and certification in the region. It provides training in four programs: construction craft worker, cement finisher, precast erector, and hazmat worker.   BNKC Architects commissioned me to photograph the full project in December 2019. The winter conditions provided some great opportunities for dramatic exterior images. The minimalist snow cover helped emphasize the materials of the building.   The goal of the interior images was to highlight the different learning spaces. Including people in some of the shots helped provide scale and give an idea of the types of activities the building was designed fo... More

northern sky circle

molo collaborated with sound artist Ethan Rose to build an ephemeral outdoor room from snow; a place for contemplation, gathering and a heightened sensory experience of the northern sky.With temperature’s plummeting to -30 Celsius, construction began in the pitch dark of New Year’s morning. The main challenge was improvising a construction method to work with the variable consistencies of snow, mixed with gravel and sand and ploughed from parking lots. The snow was piled loosely into formwork where it sintered into a solid mass. Playing with the formwork, using our bodies to back off or lean in, we were able to create a geology of formations and textures.Entering the structure’s narrow opening, one felt the weight of its massive walls.
