My personal design ideology reflects my newfound knowledge on the importance of green space, public amenities and also my personal background growing up surrounded by fertile bush land in the Northern Territory, Australia.

I constantly refer to three points of environment based questions, which have shaped form, function and purpose of my past university projects.

 

Prior to the discovery of these points, I was amazed by the fluidity of form and function and how these converged coherently with the seemingly chaotic construct of the city and / or built environment in early paintings by Zaha Hadid.

I am also a painter, since primary school, and have taken reference to Zaha Hadid's paintings of immense size,

(paintings which go beyond the site), and the freedom it allows for a discovery of form and material and how together these can create experiences, within the interior and exterior, which I also believe is best expressed through the medium of painting.

The following two reference points have been discovered through my own personal research into architect monographs, environmental issues and political debate whilst also taking into consideration university readings and personal experiences in the new world, driven by technology and political instability:

 1. How to resolve the (floating) landscape on / within the built environment?

 2. How are we to rejuvenate everyone's body and mind in our flux into (cyber) space and physical upheaval?
