TerraIN

2020

This project translates the concept of terrain into a building and is a gallery. Further from this, the design of this building is a reflection of Bewdley in more ways than one. These features include the varying heights of the roof form that allows the building to blend in with the skyline and hilly terrain of Bewdley. The building is merged with the landscape horizontally, either physically or visually. This is due to the green roof on one side blending with the grass and concrete on the other to blend with the urban fabric. The interior is simple; overall concrete structure and finishes with hints of glass and exposed steel features to create that industrial aesthetic reflective of Bewdley’s rich industrial history. In addition to this, the building houses a makerspace which is to reignite that industrial side of Bewdley again allowing visitors and residents of Bewdley to start making again.

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.
