PDF Portfolio


I am a graduate with a BA(Hons) in architecture from the University of Cambridge. Three years of study has taught me how to design architecture with a respect and understanding for the site, particularly with regards to environment and construction as well as social, structural and economic considerations. This is exemplified in the variety of projects undertaken, which include two London based designs in my first and second year and a rural design in my third year.

My undergraduate thesis titled, “Concepts of High-Rise Architecture – Skyscraper Design from Chicago and New York”, as well as the other projects and classes taken, is evidence of the level and diversity of experience with which I have left Cambridge.

With a School Art Scholarship, excellent GCSE and A-Level results and a 2.1 grade in all three years of undergraduate study I have demonstrated an ability to consistently work to a very high standard and a determination to succeed. I am qualified in the use of Microsoft Office and have experience with design programs such as Rhinoceros, AutoCAD, Microstation and Revit as well as Adobe programs such as Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign.
