Architectural Design Studies Work

Briefs: ‘To Gather’ / ‘To Collect’ / ‘To Share’

The second year of Design Studies was set in the context of the historic city of St Andrews, which was an additional element that had to be considered in the design. The creative process, both on a macro and micro scale, has provided me with the challenges I need to develop proficiency, flexibility, and critical thinking skills. I concentrated on drawing and sketching, rendering in 3D modelling software, and maintaining technical details accurately. I have also experimented with various architectural languages corresponding with the character of surrounding buildings. I have learned to ask myself more probing questions, apply retrospective analysis of the design brief and pay closer attention to precedent studies.
