Community Growth


The Digbeth community is always looked down on as people don’t feel comfortable walking through the streets of Digbeth. The crime rates have not changed in the past 3 years only relocated. My project is about giving Digbeth a chance to grow together. It is about giving them a place to come work together and create artwork and memories for decades to come. When you help build a community, I believe you bond together and value the community more. Using advanced skills such as Japanese joinery, it is also a skill you will take on board for the rest of your life. I will also provide apartments for the people of the community. As the city grows the living prices grow along with it and sometimes it drives out the people who grew up here but can’t afford to live there anymore, but I believe it is important to help people who love their community for what it is.

An enthusiastic and ambitious architecture student, I aim to appreciate and recognise the potential architecture has to understand and therefore, exemplify, the physical and social elements of the city.
I am currently engaged in a project experimenting with how architecture can create a social hierarchy, recognising the implications this has on the human scale. By curating an ‘extreme’ outcome, I look to highlight the social diversity that is prevalent in today’s society. I am interested in understanding the multiple layers and how this can be abstracted to create an architectural form that is contextually aware.
My interests in architecture focus on social issues where sustainability to society is important to the vitality of spaces. I am keen to learn new skills to develop further ideas and approaches to architecture and the built environment.
