Free Reign

2020

The concept of my final year project is identity & the shapes are taken from geometry found in the existing fabric of the building. This is a personal design trait of mine, where I find some subtle and interesting arrangement and expand on it. Here, it is simply the three small windows on the 3rd floor, transformed. Here, like the 3 functions required for the site. The imagery I have devised has 3 personalities. First, its protest boards, second, it’s graffiti cans, reflecting Digbeth’s culture. The main hub for life near Curzon. Third, layers. At any angle, the layers merge and dissect with one another and contrast. A visual metaphor for Pomo. Combining combatting the issues social housing did not resolve in the 70’s within the trend and meaning of Pomo.  

A graduate Interior Architect with interest in conservation and historic buildings. My other focuses are sculpture, installations, and exhibition design. With experience in planning and interventions in education, hospitality, and retail.  

For the past 3 years as a mature student, I have been working towards my BA, and I’m excited to pursue an MSc in Historic Conservation at Oxford Brookes University in September 2020. 

I’m in my element when it comes to collaborating and creating powerful, relevant and meaningful work. In particular with the historic environment, the ability to analyse, adapt to and promote the longevity of important sites and structures. Understanding the science and history to pair with modern and sensitve intervention, is a real drive for me. I very much enjoy my research and it is a strong skill of mind, giving me the ability to delve deeper into designs.  

 

Running parallel with my education, I do consultation and advice with various architectural ventures, design processes, and bespoke elements. Alongside this I have my own 3D printer and I design and create my own little projects for miniature games like Warhammer 40K & its scenery. 

When I am not on the job, I love my sports, and run and participate in various trail and road events. 

I also have a rather out of control house-plant collection….
