Why did you choose to study architecture?

As a child I was always making things - whether that be sellotaping card into 3D shapes, building fantastical Lego structures or knitting – I knew I wanted a creative career! But I also enjoyed logical thinking and technical strategy so wanted a career that blended the two. And I always romanticised the idea of sketching something on a piece of paper and then one day being able to walk through it and have your design come to life as a physical structure that lots of people can enjoy!

What is your best memory of the MArch course?

My best memory would have to be seeing the Mirrored Pavilion for the first time in Aberdeen Castlegate. I remember walking up King Street and catching a glint of something reflective in the distance. And then standing in front of it was surreal and awe-inspiring experience, the the design I’d been working on for months was there, now an icon of the cities festivals!

Where do you see yourself in 5 years time?

In five year’s time I hope to be a Chartered Architect working on a range of exciting and ambitious projects for clients with challenging briefs that explore what architecture can be. Plus I hope to have a successful business that has revolutionised knitting and inspired lots of young people to start knitting and enjoy the traditional craft!

Hi there! I am a Master of Architecture with distinction graduate with an eye for design and simplicity. Throughout my time at university, I have gained recognition for my projects in a number of awards and annual events including my first building design, the Mirrored Pavilion, built in 2016 in Aberdeen’s Castlegate. Working now for Tinto Architecture, an Aberdeen practice focused on putting the client at the heart of the design, I hope to sit my Part 3 exam this year to become a fully qualified architect. In 2020 I was selected for the RGU Accelerator Start Up programme and applied my creative skills learnt at Scott Sutherland to entrepreneurship and founded my first business Knit It. Knitting has been a passion from a young age and I hope to create a platform that will reinvent knitting patterns for the digital generation!
