The built environment is not ‘one’ thing, but instead filled with connections, layers, and in-betweens. Architecture should have the ability to adapt to a flexible, non-linear local environment. I am interested in building spaces as simple gestures that instill immersive narratives to connect diverse populations and perspectives. As a recent Master of Architecture graduate, I am eager to continue my passion in understanding people through design, and to continue searching for new ideas and inspiration.
