MANIFESTO

Part I Architectural Assistant

Society and the environment as the centre of architectural practice. As architects, we have the ability to shape our planet's and people's futures, therefore committing to creatively responding to issues relevant to our context is paramount. As a Part I graduate, I am interested in exploring creative ways to respond to the climate and economic crisis through innovative architecture.
