What inspired you to create your proposal?

The main inspiration for the project came as a result of our masterplan study. One of the main concepts we investigated was the idea of future-proofing Aberdeen, this idea inspired me to imagine what kind of city Aberdeen could become in the future. I began asking questions like “what will the needs of the future be?” and “what new challenges will we face?”. Having then conducted some of my own research, I found out that interplanetary travel is becoming ever more likely, which of course comes with its own challenges. I saw this as an opportunity for Aberdeen to venture into a new industry, with a focus on living sustainably.

The emergency shelter came after this, as a short study in tangent to the space research project, with themes such as climate, functionality, and survival linking the projects together. The outcome was a conceptual study into what a shelter designed for any possible situation could look like.

 

What is your architectural philosophy?

I believe that as architects we are naturally problem solvers. When I design a project my first instinct is to determine what the challenges are and to begin designing potential solutions, both the creative and technical aspects of architecture must work together in order to create these solutions effectively. I believe that innovation is key to any successful architect.

 

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

It’s hard to pinpoint an exact best moment, however I’ve always seen the study trips as highlights of the course. Getting the opportunity to travel and experience a different culture is always beneficial, and often leads to moments of inspiration. However, there’s also something special about being in studio with your pals until after hours, you definitely don’t enjoy it at the time but I think nostalgia makes you only remember the laughs you’ve had.

 

Where do you see yourself in five years time?

I think current times have highlighted that no one really knows what to expect from the future! Although hopefully in a steady job, with a nice apartment and a dog. I like the idea of working abroad in the future, although I do love Scotland so leaving may be tougher than I imagine.

Hello! I am a recent Part 2 graduate from The Scott Sutherland School of Architecture, born and raised in Aberdeen. Architecture has become a huge part of my life, however outside this my interests lie in other creative practices such as cooking, portraiture, and photography. I try to travel as much as possible - there’s nothing better than getting to experience a place’s culture, food, and nightlife, and getting to see new sights!
