I completed my MArch (prof) in 2012 entitled: Quotidian Architecture – occupying the sidewalk. It examined the city as a place of increasing opportunity, a receptacle for new social, cultural and economic strata. The urban environment being converted and mutated by everyday public performances. The built wall was seen as the attraction and “glue” that establishes new activities. It was in this notion that conventional architectural typologies was challenged.
The dissertation explored the notion of the wall in an attempt to reconfigure the sidewalk. A conceptual network of interfaces that contain infrastructure, public services and urban armatures was proposed. Within this context, it was argued that architecture should support these everyday performances as well as define a new spatial identity, within the urban environment.
After completing my Masters in 2012, I worked for DrawboxDesignStudio as a candidate architect followed by Arca Unlimited Architects as a professional Architect before moving to Cape Town in 2016. I am currently situated at WAUW (wow Architectural and Urban Workshop) as a project architect overseeing high rise residential developments.
As a sports enthusiast I completed a 1500km cycle tour along the east maritime states of Canada in 2015 and part take in Ironman events across the country.
