My time as a Master’s in Architecture student has become more than collecting a ‘piece of paper’… Design modules have provided ambition to keep pushing for change within the legislation all stakeholders follow within the construction industry to create a carbon-negative sector. The thesis recognises that high streets require repair. However, the view is not necessarily a design-orientated process but an opportunity for a sustainable strategy. For example, identifying the damage along a high street that can be filled irresponsibly, but the proposal sustainably does this—inspired by the Miyazaki and Kunstugi models that have been tested before.
In addition, the Special Study has propelled an opportunity to be at the forefront of open-source software that provides greater streamlined opportunities to self-builders nationwide. No matter which direction the working world takes me from now, the desire to continue researching will almost certainly lead the way.
