MANASC ISAAC ROOF GARDEN / design and construction /
internship at Manasc Isaac Architecture / 2012
This roof top patio was designed and constructed for Manasc Isaac Architecture on top of the historic Oliver Building in Edmonton, Alberta. As an intern for the firm, I worked on the patio from the schematic design phase to costing and ordering supplies, and construction and planting. A small team to transformed the un-utilized roof top into a social space for the firm and an opportunity to foster urban agriculture on a modest budget. Soon after completion the space became popular for patio parties, lunch time yoga, Friday afternoon music sessions and picking herbs and tomatoes for summer salads.
