MCIAT / Part 1 Architecture Student
Graduating in 2013 with a Bachelor of Science (Hons) in Architectural Technology from the Scott Sutherland School of Architecture, Robert Gordon University Aberdeen I have spent the previous six years developing my design knowledge and technical skills through employment in Architectural Practice.
Working within a small practice has enabled involvement with projects from inception to completion. Exposure to both residential and commercial projects has allowed me to develop a thorough understanding of the processes involved in successful project delivery.
I have achieved the status of Chartered Architectural Technologist within The Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists - CIAT.
At present I am working towards becoming a qualified Architect through undertaking the Royal Institute of British Architects - RIBA Examination in Architecture at Oxford Brookes University. This provides a means to achieve the recognised qualifications: the RIBA Part 1 and the RIBA Part 2 whilst continuing to enhance my skills through remaining in employment within Architectural Practice. Having now completed my RIBA Part 1 in Architecture I am working towards completing my RIBA Part 2.
I have undertaken the role of a Visiting Critic at the Scott Sutherland School of Architecture providing presentations on professional practice to undergraduate students and taking an active role in providing student feedback at end-of-semester Crits.
I am inspired by Scandinavian design alongside exploring contemporary takes on traditional Scottish architecture.I also have a keen interest in Mid-Century Modern furniture and enjoy experimenting with inexpensive materials to design and create original pieces.
