My name is Sandy Wang. I am simultaneously a student, a designer, and a Canadian. Not too many people outside of the provincial boarders know about Burnaby, so I tell people I live in Vancouver.

This is my third attempt at maintaining a blog.

One of my first successful timelapses, cued to sexy music, of course.

Visualization in collaboration with SALA M.Arch thesis student Angela Enman. Her research:

Transcending the Everyday

Using the ‘environmental unit’ concept from the book Made in Tokyo, an urban cemetery is attached to Broadway-City Hall skytrain station on the Canada Line, thickening the existing infrastructure and creating a direct connection from the station to City Hall. The project includes two different interment typologies - one traditional and one invented - with accompanying facilities as well as several programs to serve both commuters and mourners. By juxtaposing the rituals of commuting and remembering the dead, each one is heightened and new depth brought to the experience of everyday urban life.”

-Angela Enman, 2014


Visuals by me in collaboration with SALA M.Arch thesis student Mira Yung.

Her research:


"Over the course of the last centuries the urbanized coastline has progressively lost its original form. Finally the challenges of climate change calls for a new vision that anticipates future. Providing flood resiliency to an urbanized coastline such as False Creek requires careful mediation between the existing condition and the proposed. By investigating the conventional earth dike, Coastalogy turns the forces around as a producer of spatial opportunities for human and habitat, while remediating the ecology and connecting people back to the water"
