Why did you choose to study architecture?

It was suggested as a career choice from one of my school teachers - after an exercise we did including orthographic drawings of shapes. I looked into it further and chose a class called 'architectural drawing' which made me realise that I really enjoyed it. I was also obsessed with Barcelona and Gaudi at the time, which made me love architecture and led me into choosing it as a profession.

 

What is the most challenging part of your project?

As my project concerned the adaptive reuse of an existing building, the whole project was a bit of a challenge for me. The most challenging aspect however was figuring out how the new structure and any addition to the existing building, meets the existing envelope.

 

Where do you see yourself in five years?

I would like to continue working in Conservation as it's a sector that I love, and hopefully obtain my Part 3.
