The topic of the project was to use an existing site by Ninth Line, Mississauga and create a community centre for nearby families in the area. What we came up with was "The Bird's Nest Community Centre". The community centre includes many outdoor ameneties such as a basketball court, four tennis courts, a soccer field, a trail, and a small pond. Inside the building itself, there other spaces for visitors. These include a library, a children's play area, a conference room, a theater room, a class room, and lounge rooms for visitors to rest, chat, or eat.
The design of the building, as well as its name, is derived from a egg. We came up with the idea of an egg being surrounded by a warm nest, thus the building was shaped like an egg and the site represented the nest. We wanted the building to have a playful nature to building to attract families to visit it and enjoy their time being there. We used wood materials all around the building to further support the building's connection with nature and giving the building an all around warm feeling that we hoped would leave the visitors feel at home
