WEEK 2: URBAN DESIGN -
WEEK 04 : OBJECT DESIGN - EMBRACING SENSE OF PLACE
“As a student at the University of Virginia, I have developed an interest in incorporating infrastructure as a part of the everyday design aesthetic. There has been a tendency to assume that our world is stable, but as coasts shift and temperatures change, it becomes important to acknowledge that our world is in a constant state of fluctuation. By exposing the infrastructure that our cities and town rely on, the extent of our built environment becomes a part of our everyday realities.
As a landscape architect, I would like to create environments that feed insects but also provide joy to the people within them. I am interested in finding aesthetically appealing solutions to remediate polluted sites. Landscape architecture provides an exciting method of reengaging spaces while correcting past ecological mistakes. From an infrastructural and conceptual scale, I am fascinated by returning to the smaller scale and responding to microclimates and material palettes to provide a sense of place and identity.”
