Master of Architecture (Part II), MArch

About me

I have always had a passion for Architecture. I worked hard to kick-start my dream of obtaining an Architecture degree by attending night school alongside my engineering apprenticeship when I was 18; this allowed me to enrol on the Part 1 Course.

I have been lucky enough to work throughout all of my studies and during the Covid Pandemic at various practices around the UK. This has helped me to develop my passion for Architecture and Design even more. I have also become an expert at remote working/studying!

When I am not studying or working I enjoy going to the cinema or gym and walking my two dogs Pip and Riley.

Circular Rotterdam was an idea formed by looking at ways to change and improve the plastic recycling process in Rotterdam. Plastic pollution and plastic waste is a major problem in the world. The need for better plastic innovation and recycling technology is paramount if we want to ensure a clean environment for generations to come.
To meet the ever changing requirements the building will focus on three fundamental drivers. Recycling, innovation and education. These drivers can be seen as the starting blocks for Rotterdam to take back control of it plastic recycling and Awareness of the problem.
