Year 2 Portfolio



My second year at Sheffield University School of Architecture has been a year of broadening my knowledge from the first year while trying different ways and skills of pushing my design ideas. The three projects had different site challenges that taught me how to make design decisions and allowed me to take risks when designing at larger scale. My design process involves model making, sketches and expanding ways in using wire as a designing tool.
