My aspiration for Woven Architects is to create architecture that closely responds to client and user requirements, is contextually relevant, and minimises its effect on the environment.
I have a particular interest in how the design of architecture can provide benefit to the health and well being of individuals and the wider community. For my Masters Thesis at Unitec- titled 'Active Living Architecture', I explored how the layout of an inner city mixed-use apartment building could be designed to encourage closer interaction with our food, encourage everyday movement and bring elements of nature back into the city. The overall aim of this being to create a building which provided health and well being benefits to its occupants and users. Whether a project is big or small, I seek to find ways in which architecture can in some way leave us better off than before we experienced it, even if our interaction with it is only short.
