Paradigm is a complex of three building typologies which reflect the music industry, these typologies are retail, performance and studio space.
This project reflects the current affairs in the music industry today, with the death of physicals, the decline of grass root venues and the rise of capitalism. This rhetoric is the basis for the project however time changes
everything and with the introduction of the Covid 19 and social distancing leads to the demises of the scheme and the re-emergence of the culture in 2120 as a new generation of people create an underground scene.

This project takes abstractions from gig culture, festival culture and pub culture, and personifies into a cyclical theme. The idea of sustainability is one of the underlying components to the project as part of the RIBAs Climate act to reduce the amount of carbon emissions from a building as well as the embodied carbon within the material.

There are many things I am passionate about however these are a just a few of them. Music has been a key to me for inspiration as well as a hobby in terms of playing, listing and going to shows which I have been to over 90
another passion for me is sustainability and the environment as I believes not only that the future lies in within it but its also helped in for a lot of my lifestyle choices. As well as this I enjoy watching movies and tv and reading as these helped fuel my creativity my favourite genres is science fiction and horror.
I have a variety of skills in various fields however for architecture theses are the most preferable, can use a range of 2D and 3D designing software from Auto cad to rhino and sketch up. For rendering I use Lumion and Enscape. As well as these I can use a lot of the adobe suite.
