My interest in design stems from its points of intersection with history. In the seminar course From Black Square to Black Reason, by Natalie Frankowski and Cruz Garcia of WAI Architecture Think Tank (Fall 2020), students were exposed to the relationship between history and the formation of art, cities, and pedagogy. The course led to a project in which I created a short narrative about who benefits and who is harmed by the architecture of modern cities.
The resources provided on campus have also developed my interests in woodworking and writing. I have been able to work on projects related to these interests through the fabrication labs and the school’s student run magazine, Ricker Report.
