About Me: After my undergrad at MSA I worked at a small practice called 'Triangle Architects' in Manchester during my part 1 experience last year. I was mainly working on different social housing and healthcare schemes but I also helped with promotional aspects and a few other projects. Outside of university I've always enjoyed playing sports, in particular football, and doing some sketching too! We're all excited for the upcoming project 'Plot Twist' and can't wait to meet everyone!

Skills and Activities:

Plot Twist will encompass a wide variety of skills and activities, and although the experience will be entirely online, we hope to make for a fun and productive working environment. Our team of MArch students will be working alongside MLA and BA students to provide a smooth, productive workflow. Our two weeks will consist of workshops, lectures, and group activities. The first week will be focussed around getting to know one another, site research and design preparation. We will then split into smaller groups and begin the design process within the second week, leading to a final proposal. The main programmes we will be using are the Adobe Suite (including Photoshop, Indesign, and Illustrator), 3D Modelling software (including Sketchup and Revit) and AutoCAD. We also hope to do some ‘at home’ physical modelling where possible.

Social Values:

In Plot Twist, we are rethinking what an urban space can be. The city of Bradford offers a rich history and diverse range of cultures we wish to celebrate through the proposal of an urban farm. The scheme will bring together and promote concepts of health and wellbeing, creating valuable communities, and reassessing urban infrastructure.
The reinterpretation of this empty plot in Bradford will address these ideas through research, design, and collaboration of the members of Plot Twist. We hope to draw on a diverse range of backgrounds and education to create a unique proposal to rebalance the city space in favour of our social values.
