Sam Clark

Edinburgh, GB



A third year architecture student, currently out on my placement year until January 2017. I am an outgoing person, passionate about expanding my architectural knowledge and eager to pursue a career in Architectural Journalism or Architectural Design. 

I like to do a variety of things in my spare time but I mainly enjoy socialising, exploring new places and creative writing. I do also, however, have a hard-working nature - highlighted through the part-time jobs I maintained throughout university. I'm a very sociable person, I have a positive attitude and I thrive working both individually and as part of a team.

My other responsibilities included calling in objects for photo shoots and attending press events on behalf of the magazine, last of which included press days at prestigious institutions such as the V&A Museum and the Royal Institute of British Architects.
