STAINED GLASS WINDOW 2013


I took part in a workshop at Otago Stained Glass in stained glass and lead-light. Through this 3 week course I learnt the methods of designing, the history of stained glass, cutting and building a stained glass window. I also learnt the technique of sgraffito - as seen in the medallion. I have built up a love for working with glass and light


SCHWIMMHAUS BOOT MODEL 2014

This project was to create a model of a building with the theme ‘Alternative Housing’. I chose a houseboat which is situated on a river in Germany, Schwimmhausboot, designed by Confused Direction. I downloaded plans and then transformed them into a laser cutting file and from that laser cut a model. My model is made of sanded and clear perspex, Kokomo glass and MDF. 


RESCAPE RESILLIENCE EDUCATION CENTRE 2015

This project is a 10sqm pilot building constructed of an alternative building technique. The designed output for this project is participatory based documentation that gives practical and social instructions for the completion of the physical manifestation of these ideas.

The vision behind this project is to allow ReScape to maintain and enhance their values and principles of sustainability, resilience and permaculture, while still being able to meet their building needs.

The act of constructing the 10sqm building is intended to serve as a demonstration of sustainable participatory design, as well as serve as a pilot model for future projects, while educating the participants.
