SKIN. A Living Decay

BIO

I have thoroughly enjoyed my three years in architecture with its ups, down and last minute design changes. For our final design project, we were assigned a design brief to design an architectural school. I decided to base it on my own experience and how I felt the output and mind-set of architecture students can be enhanced and changed.

I wanted to create a space where we feel at home yet alien. We connect with not only our ideas and methods but ideally with this space. This living organism that ages as we do. A space and structure that regenerates when it’s consumed by degeneration. That feels the pressure when all else is failing and responds through its structure and physicality. Then it will rise, It will close, open, turn, transform and metamorphsize. Layers upon layers it will feed on our ideas and consume our creativity. A place where we can lose and find our identity.  A place to preserve our mental and physical state through hibernation.
