About me

During my time at UCLan, I have been heavily involved with the course as well as being involved in extracurricular roles, including, the RIBA program Think Architecture which aims to inspire high school children to consider the architectural industry as a career path.

After earning my Master’s Degree in Architecture from UCLan, I am now entering the Architectural industry with hopes of exploring my passion for design, conservation, and inclusivity in architecture.

De Vergadertafel, (The Gathering Table), focuses on developing a series of spaces that provide the community of Feijenoord in Rotterdam with the opportunity to gather, create, share and learn. The project aims to;
– target young people in the community and people who want to learn and share skills
-The site proximity allows many people from the neighbourhood to engage
-The neighbourhood has a high unemployment rate and levels of petty crime such as anti-social behaviour, low levels of skilled workers
-Create a space for people to learn, create, and gather, decreasing boredom which could potentially reduce petty crim rates
