Architecture (Foundation Entry)

About me

I was born in Bradford in 2001, I came to UCLan in 2021 to venture into architecture. In September I started my foundation year. I did this so that I could build the skills necessary to build upon for the rest of my course. My key skills are in model making and being able to pick wildly different designs. Before university I achieved three A levels, they were in History, Physics and Maths. That was because I was very interested in these subjects and if you look closely at my work these loves resonate through it. For example some of my buildings contain, 30,45 and 60 degree angles because of their usefulness in trigonometry. Maths helps me to keep everything in line with scale ratios and history helped me when I was looking at an historic building because I can put them into their contemporary societal context.

Architecture Foundation Year. We were given 4 assignments. An Off-Grid Beach house situated in Formby. An Infill Gallery based in Southport. A Primary School based in Avenham Park in Preston and finally we were tasked to draw 40 buildings of architectural intrest for our History and Theory

Here I made a model for my Primary school assignment, near to my site, there was a cafe and it's windows were very influencial in this design, I used wings for fire safety reasons

Here I made a design that had art-deco sensibilities because there is a disussed gallery close by. I was attempting to bring the style back because I feel that it would fit by the seaside

This is an A1 techinacal drawing of the primary school design called 'the asterisk' there was a wing each for three year groups, the library the sports hall with the dining hall in the middle.

This was a design for the Formby off grid beach house, we had a small footprint for the site so I added more floors also it has cable stays, inspired by Dubai Creek Tower.

This is my model for the 'Asterisk' design, each segment has it's own roof to indicate the colour coordination that I would have, so that it was easier to move in the school.

This is my 'Curved Tower' design. This is a design that was there from the very beginning along with the cable stayed design and was developed throughout the design process.

This is Design #5 for the primary school. It has a curved roof, each segment of the roof is meant to be asymmetric this is because it is inspired by The Glasgow Seaside Gallery.

This is the 'Triangles' design. I used wood to show that wood, would be a real life material featured in this design. This is because some wood resources are very renewable.

I made this Painting for my History and Theory assignment it's of Dubai's Princess Tower. The reason I chose this building was because at one point, it was the tallest residenctial building in the world.

This is a design style for the gallery facade. It is based on the georgian style that features where the galery infill site is situated. There are a lot of galleries in this style.
