I was brought up in the Lake District and moved to Manchester in 2006 to start university and I fully embraced the possibilities that the city offered. After completing my first degree here I moved to London in order to complete my part one experience, which I did at a small firm in west London working closely with clients on private residences.
Upon returning to Manchester in September 2010 in order to start my BARCH degree I joined MSAP intrigued with the way in which architecture can affect peoples lives and the way in which the Urban fabric can alter lives and communities if designed sensitively with the users.
Working as a part of MSAP has opened my eyes to alternative architecture practice and has encouraged me to become more outgoing. Through interacting with multiple groups in the community I have sought to establish their desires and construct them in spatial manor. Through my dissertation I explored the role of the model in encouraging participation in architecture and this has confirmed my belief that the model is the most vital tool in architectural design.
