Part I Architectural Assistant

As a graduate embarking on the first stages of my career, I am driven by the potential of exploring architecture beyond its material reality.”

My curiosity lies in the boundary between spatial interaction and experience, and what makes a place meaningful. For my final year thesis at the University of Westminster, I questioned whether our concepts of place could exist within a virtual reality. This led to the design of a building that would facilitate dual interaction with real and surreal spaces, an Embassy for Decentraland. The project itself was nominated for the RIBA bronze medal.

My BA study has fostered a strong passion in communicating architecture through new media, notably animation. I was immediately drawn to Egret West due to their enthusiasm for this, and their support for developing individual interests.
