  • As a Design Historian I have had the opportunity to conduct objects based analysis at the V&A museum. Leading onto an in-depth study of architectural design change through sixteenth and seventeenth century London, through the space of London Bridge.

    Throughout my studies at the college I have been involved with the execution and runnings of our first year exhibition "A Toolkit for Provocative Practice", for which I collaborated with the jewellery department, casting and reimagining the bronze medal from my object essay.

    I have focused my final dissertation upon the Los Angeles Coliseum Stadium, through its construction and design. I am interested in how this creates city identity, and the ways in which leisured spaces are built and utilised.
