Reimagining the Private Islands Mézidor, Aïden


This project aims to deconstruct Western Colonial design dominance of visual imagery over the other senses by exploring closer detail elements through multisensorial principles and inverting the top-down conventional hierarchy of architectural design. The intervention foregrounds a connection to the community-driven process that is deeply embedded in Hogan’s Alley, a former Vancouver neighbourhood that was home to a large African-Canadian population. The designed elements of focus on this project are driven by Hogan’s Alley community aspirations.
