About 

Biography:

Sai Wentum is currently studying for his MArch Architecture RIBA Part 2 degree at the University of Westminster, graduating from his first degree in, BA (Hons) Architecture at the University for the Creative Arts in Canterbury. 

He has previously worked for the London Borough of Newham's multidisciplinary design department where he has gained a wide and varied experience working on projects within various sectors. During his time here he has played a vital role throughout the life cycle of projects from the initial stages of client engagement through to procurement and delivery . 

Although studying architecture, Wentum’s early foundations in graphic and product design, heavily influence his architectural work, believing that it is important for these three design disciplines to run in sync to further engage the human interface.

With up to six years of experience in the public sector he aims to use architecture and design as a means of inspiring those for which it is built for, to use their resources to progress and improve their future.
