An exploration into the relationship between architecture, art and people provides a human lead and emotive lens through which spaces can be understood and designed. Throughout my education, the use of artists’ methodologies as a tool has enabled me to design spaces focused on human inhabitation, interaction and experience. Extending the use of fine art techniques to create final imagery using different mediums enables them to be both spatially legible and effectively reflect the experience and capture the atmospheric qualities of a space.
I hope to continue this exploration of architecture and art through working on pavilions, temporary architecture and installations, while also using my knowledge of human inhabitation in larger scale projects and wider city scape proposals.
Thesis - The Court of Innocence
‘Innocent until proven guilty’ is the fundamental principle of a fair trial - however the architectural design of the UK’s Crown Court does nothing to endorse this. Therefore, this thesis aims to rethink justice spaces to better reflect judicial proceedings; thereby improving the way users of the courts interact, and increasing transparency between the court system and the wider society which it serves. This body of research uses artists’ methodologies to explore the themes of guilt and innocence through the lens of spatial inhabitation, body language and human emotions.
