Having completed my Master’s Degree in Architecture at Scott Sutherland School of Architecture in Aberdeen, I am eager to continue my journey in design by gaining experience and learning from working in an architectural practice before studying and gaining RIBA Part 3 qualifications. While studying architecture at university I have enjoyed success in both personal and collaborative project work, developing many skills in the process. I aim to continue growing as a young designer and refine my design skills by working with and learning from other architects and designers.

 

What inspired you to create your proposal?

After visiting Orkney for a study trip I was incredibly inspired by the rich arts and crafts community that is deeply rooted in Orcadian culture. Orkney’s thriving creative scene is unrivalled, with an enormous variety of island businesses designing everything from jewellery, pottery and woodwork, to textiles, artwork and photography. My proposal aims to provide members of the community creative spaces inside their home.

 

What is your best memory of the M.Arch course?

I’ve enjoyed all of my time on the course but a personal highlight for me was the study trip in stage six to Copenhagen and Malmo. It was an incredible opportunity to explore and discover Scandinavian architecture as well as experiencing new cultures. 

 

What is your architectural philosophy?

Even after six years of studying at Scott Sutherland School I’m still learning and only just beginning to develop an architectural philosophy and this will only continue to develop throughout my architectural career. However, I’m currently fascinated in minimal and simplistic architecture and I look to architects such as Aires Mateus and John Pawson for inspiration.
