What inspired you to create your design?

The design inspiration comes from the stage atmosphere before a show begins, hinting mystery from the outside. The facade resembles the pattern of a theatre curtain, which is about to unveil. As with movie production, the magic is being created and we feel the same anticipation in a cinema. The east facade facing the sea is incorporating kinetic panels resembling a camera lens, opening and closing during the day to ensure optimised working environment.

 

What is your best memory of the March course?

I would say that I have many good memories like the time spent making my models, discussing ideas and the moment after a final review when the sense of accomplishment and freedom kicks in. I also enjoyed our study trips and the time spent with my friends in the studio (the laughter cracking boards).

 

Why did you choose to study architecture?

There are many reasons why I chose architecture. Exploring it requires knowledge on many fields and most importantly requires creativity and innovation. Architecture has the power to change people’s lives for the better. The profession gives us the ability to create spaces on the basis of scientific knowledge to enhance health and well-being through technology, biology and psychology. Health and well-being is often linked with nature (Biophilic Design) which is a broad source of inspiration for architects. Inspiration, optimism and a set of principles is what spikes ideas and leads to a better future.

On a more personal note, my granddad and grand granddad were artists and I always admired their work. I would like to transform architecture into a piece of art like they could do on the canvas.

Taking the first step into my educational journey and leaving my home country, pushed me to adapt to a different lifestyle and meet new people. Thus, the thirst for travel began and I decided to go on an Erasmus Exchange in Milan during my second year. Except Architectural subjects, I attended one from a Building Engineering Master's Course, where I was allowed to work with seven other masters students. I challenged myself to go the extra mile and I gained better insight into detailing and technology of green building. Apart from architecture, I am also fond of travelling, yoga and food tasting.

I was also in the team for the creation of this exhibition and the 57°10 Architectural Society. As a recent MArch Architecture graduate, I am ready to take on the next challenge.
