Taking on the challenge of designing a better way of life, architecturally, I am inclined to think of an individual’s relationship with a building. As we mature our pallet of aesthetics and necessity, buildings around us should be able to adjust quicker, allowing us to learn from the future of architecture, while simultaneously embracing the past. My vision is to use architecture as a medium that can adapt, enhance and redefine the way we coexist with our surroundings. This can be achieved through researching and investigating human psychology, architectural theory, and our evolving technological advancements.

I received a travel grant to support an intensive one month studio in Portugal. During winter-session, I will be studying the cultural translation from Portugal to Providence, specifically investigating how traditions, food, music, and literature shifted its gears as individuals relocated across the Atlantic. Our final work produces a building proposal in Providence that can embody elements from the Portuguese lifestyle, along with characteristics of Providence.
