Bima is in the second year of the BA Architecture program in the Manchester School of Architecture. His current interest in how women navigate spaces within the city of Jakarta, and fascination with the way cultures of economic, environmental, political, and societal extract building materials has pushed him into an interesting course within architecture. At the heart of it all is his interest in creative writing, in particular essay writing.

First year, MSA
I am interested in the move towards a greater level of equality, and therefore how we can use architecture as a tool in the feminist movement. Successful architects that have made a positive change are very inspiring to me, and I think to learn more about these individuals is very important for me, in such an early stage of my education and career.

Ruby is in the second year of BA Architecture at the Manchester School of Architecture. Born in Hong Kong, where the male patriarchal culture still exists without people realising actively, she is eager to explore what the future holds for women in the architecture industry. Throughout the course, she found the sustainability and well-being aspects of building design very interesting and will continue exploring for the rest of her degree.

I am currently completing my second year at Manchester School of Architecture. I am interested in sustainable and innovative design solutions focused on creating healthy, productive spaces that address environmental concerns within a framework of user comfort and aesthetic. In my personal time I enjoy painting and working with traditional art mediums as a creative outlet.
I aim to raise awareness about women's architectural achievements in an industry that is still widely dominated by men and where male achievements in the field are sadly more often recognized and publicized over female achievements.

She wants to learn more about how different materials and lighting can change the atmosphere of a place, as well as how people have changed their ideas on what these concepts mean. She is interested in how multiple social, political, environmental and cultural beliefs influenced the build environment.
