Artefacts
Designing-Through-Making

 



— Understanding Structures Through the Development of Digital & Physical Skills —

Sustainable Joints & Connections.

Balancing Type and Use of Skills.


            Designed for the first-year undergraduate student with limited prior understanding of three-dimensional forms and the processes for developing and communicating experimental yet purposeful structures for intervention within an urban environment.

            My approach to designing artefacts enables students and professionals to call on various skills to convey their ideas to third parties by using a variety of different media whilst gaining an understanding and testing of the performance of different materials as well as iterative/non-linear processes in playful experimentation and analysis.
