If the last two years have been anything for me, it’s a brutal reminder of how much I value social interaction. Professionally, and largely due to the industry experience that I have been lucky enough to receive, they have also marked a shift from a naïve fear of densification to a keenness for what it will mean for the future of urban design. My graduation project has been a catalyst for me in terms of starting to apply the above realisations into my own practice. Taking on the form of an episodic highline and circulation spine around City Hill, the project relies on the hypothesis that future efforts to revitalise our Civic Centre will need to address both density and pedestrian mobility. It has allowed me to develop my own assumptions around the future of London Circuit and Vernon Circle and the impact that this will likely have on the broader urban fabric. At this point in my career, my goals are to talk to as many people as I can, ask as many questions as they will let me and hopefully start to contribute positively towards social and environmental outcomes across the built environment.
