My time at Falmouth and the courses hands on, design through making nature has allowed me to utilise and expand my skillset acquired prior to returning to education. The degree has introduced me to new concepts and ways of thinking, helping to refine my principles as a designer.
Both my final year projects demonstrate these principles by addressing issues’ surrounding sustainability, the use of new materials and their creation but also the need for more people centred and humanist design. Allowing an in depth understanding of place, context and how the built environment can influence communities in a positive way.
This approach will be the foundation I take forward and build on following graduation, be it into a practice if the right job offer comes along in these unprecedented times or returning to Falmouth in September as part of the first cohort on the new masters course.
