MA work

Cabin Fever, a flat-packed garden studio, making architecture fun and accessible by reducing the build process to folding boxes. The mass customisable studio is based on five folded patterns and creates a modular system. All components are manufactured entirely on a CNC router, and intuitively connect like building blocks to form a durable, weather-resistant structure.

Jet Lag, my second project, helps travellers treat themselves, to overcome jet lag by resetting their biological clock according to ancient Chinese medicine. Through acupressure and encouraging awareness of body functions, it is possible to readjust to a new time zone more quickly.
