Architecture (Foundation Entry)

About me

Before getting onto the architecture course at UCLan, I studied maths, chemistry, and biology at A-Level and before that, art and textiles at GCSE. The architecture course has inspired me to explore technology and science to improve the performance of buildings both socially and environmentally. Which therefore linked to my science A-Levels. I believe architecture brings out a different dynamic of my personality.

The sort of architecture I am interested in is sustainable or greenhouse. I am looking to minimize the harmful effects of construction projects on human health and the environment by choosing eco-friendly building materials and construction practices. I believe the new eco-buildings and building of the future should have a feature that carefully adapts to the environment.

In this ramp gallery design project, the gallery theme design is sustainable or greenhouse design. Particularly because I believe that many buildings remain huge contributors to greenhouse gas emissions worldwide. I incorporated an idea with a big tree centrepiece to encourage people to use the staircase more than the elevator. The tree can act as an attraction, hence creating an eco-friendly approach. The shape of building is designed purposely as curvy (like women) to represent women empowerment according to artemisia in the 17th century.
