As designer, I seek to explore the environment through multiple perspectives, from the human to the infrastructural scale in a rigorous study of site and context. Architectural interventions demand a strong connection to the surrounding fabric to create a highly diverse yet connective public realm. As this realm grows exponentially and urban fabrics become denser, the role of technological and infrastructural systems must be in a constant evolution to meet the demands of self-sufficient cities. My work identifies struggling connections while forging new linkages between the human, social and technological realms to address rising global challenges.
