As a creative individual, I always thrive for achieving the best outcome possible to me. I am confident in my skills and the capability of learning new things and overcoming new challenges. Thus, I tend to welcome new opportunities and challenges, and always willing to prove myself at every chance. I have a keen eye for details and precision, especially when it comes to my work, because I see it as an extension of who I am, therefore, it must portray my ideas and personality.

ARCHITECTURAL EXPERIENCE

EXPERIENCE (OTHER)

ARCHITECTURAL ASSISTANT

BAR SUPERVISOR

| SEPTEMBER 2018 - DECEMBER 2019

CDRB ARCHTECTS LTD Working at a smaller practice at CDRB Architects Ltd, meant that my role as Part 1 Architectural Assistant was more demanding than usual. From the beginning, I was given my own projects and clients to run, and was expected of producing high qualities of drawing output. This meant that I quickly learnt the how the world of architecture work behond just than the drawings, as my responsibilities were more than just producing drawings. Responsibilities: Variety of Projects:

- Handling of various clients, with various projects. - Being in contacts with different councils, and understanding the logistical side of architecture such as; Planning Applications, Design & Access Statements and Appeals - Conducting my own surveys, my own meetings with clients and my own time managements of my projects - Being in contacts with builders, manufacturers or whomever is involved in the project - Housedwellings; Extensions, conversions and Internal remodelling - Schemes; Students accommodations, appartments buildings and HMOs - Commercial; shops and restaurants - Others; Drop Kerbs applications

This was my first ever project at CDRB Architects Ltd, given to me on Bathroom my third day. It was a simple project of changing an abandoned house, to an HMO. Following a meeting with the St client, the objective was something affordable, and not too much internal remodelling, as the client wanted to put on the market as soon as possible.

In this particular project, the client was keen having a rear and side extension over his existing garage, adding a new master bedroom with an ensuite. One of my biggest challenge as the lead architect in this project was not just producing what the client desired, but also using the new gained space to improve the overall quality of space, especially on the ground floor. Therefore, as the proposed idea showcased, I utilised that space, to create a free-flowing kitchen/ SUBMIS Dining area, to maximise spatiPLANNING al utility and light in take.

OTHER PROJECTS

These are selected projects that I was part of, but in a more assisting role, rather than a lead. Assisting came in different form, whether it’d be from assisting the lead architect on a particular decision, or just helping with the drawings in order to meet the deadline. Personally, these projects helped me understand the value of communication and teamwork within the practice, and sharing the pressure of a difficult, whilst also maintaining a high standiard of the practice.

01 URBAN PLANNING

THE SITE

THE COVENTRY-CO DEVELOPMENT COntribution - COnnection - COmmunity

As Coventry grows, there’s a disconnect between its’ locals and the international visitors. And this separation is evident in how its people interact with the city and the relationship of the spaces throughout the city, particularly, the inner ring road and everything else on the outer. The Coventry-Co Development project is an attempt to mend the disconnect through urban planning. The project highlights a particular area. north of the city center, in which there is a clear disconnect between the city and the suburbs, with the ring road acting as a barrier stopping either to integrate. The main principle of this urban planning is highlighting three key elements that will solve the aforementioned issued; Contribution, Connection, and Community. The Connection is of what this area should be, a gateway to the inner city center for all the stakeholders, especially for the Community who are separated and hidden behind a large desolate space and dangerous park. Although not just for the resident, this projects aim to bring all; locals, international visitors and student to Contribute toward improving the city. PEDESTRIAN NETWEORK

LES RATCLIFFE CULTURAL CENTER

The Les Ratcliffe Cultural Center is a project of one of the main partners of The Coventry CoProject Development, Coventry & Warwickshire Champions Groups. Who has staked a claim to create their own project, thus continuing the new agenda of improving Coventry. The client, Coventry & Warwickshire Champions Group is a conglomerate of 98 organization, within 10 different industry sectors, all of which operates in Coventry, promotes the city and Warwickshire area as a great place to do business. The client aim was to find a solution, to all the ‘realities facing the city’. The aim is to have an education and cultural community center, that will have classes, providing teachings specific to the different sectors in the groups, to all; student and locals, dealing with the issue of no qualification and lack of skills in Coventry. Which, will further help with unemployment. In addition, the center will also have offices spaces that will not only provide a base for the businesses within the group but also be available for new start-ups in requiring the need of space, thus promoting and encouraging new start-ups. Furthermore, due to the involvement of Culture Coventry and other prominent cultural groups within the conglomerate. The client also wishes for the building to address the issue of low interest in cultural engagement.

OPERATIONAL ZONE

BUILDING PROGRAMS The proposal will be split into three different zones, reflecting the function and users: Educational, Operational, Cultural. The Educational zone will primarily be for the enrolling students and classes: consisting of five classrooms, four Media rooms, and three functionally different workshops. The Cultural zone, that will be accessible to the public, as it consists of: an exhibition Space, Dining and social area. The Operational zone will be for our client to operate, and mostly a private area. It consists of different sized office space, and an open plan office breakaway area, that aims to promote integration and collaboration between the different organization in the clients’ group. In addition, it will also include, two meeting rooms and a theatre space, for a conference or public speaking In total, Les Ratcliffe Cultural Center proposal will be a 4000m2 proposal. CONCEPT ‘A CITY WITHIN A BUILDING’ Coventry & Warwickshire Champions Group is a conglomeration of the different organizations, different, and different cultures. The group itself is a representation of Coventry city’s growing and wide inhabitants. It is then a challenge of designing for such a requirement. So how does one design for it? ‘A city within a building’ is a response to such question. The concept means treating the spatial and functional quotas as a living city rather than just a contemporary building. It means challenging the usual tropes against the fundamentals of how a city functions. This Cultural and Education intends on creating a flexible and adaptable flow of spaces in order to achieve balance among all of its different users In order to achieve the set of rules established by the concept, and create the vertical movement wanted from the concept, the notion of just having a set of stacked floor level had to be challenged. Thus, treating the concept has city, it became clear that the city could be viewed on different levels, without having the impression of a horizontal movement. Meaning one level can have multiple sub-levels at various height, and it’s in this nature that this floor plans with that this new proposed plans of multiple sub-levels are founded upon on.

Foundation and Core

Concrete structure and beams

Floors and stairs

External facade and Internal walls

The building has two concrete core and concrete raft foundation. The core acts as fire staircases and also as building’s stabilisers.

The columns are reinforced concrete columns, chosen due to being able to provide strength and support, whilst still maintaining the aspect of being organic. They are split into three main separate group, in accordance to its average span, and calculated load, calculated as a general office space. Group 1 5500x5500 (mm) span Group 2 6000x4250 (mm) span Group 3 7500x7500 (mm) span

In order to achieve the set of rules established by the concept, and create the vertical movement wanted from the concept, the notion of just having a set of stacked floor level had to be challenged. Thus, treating the concept has city, it became clear that the city could be viewed on different levels, without having the impression of a steep horizontal movement. Meaning one level can have multiple sublevels at various height

A south-facing louver system is environmentally advantageous, especially considering the main public space is southbound. A glazed facade facing the yard square is preferred, as it benefits the workshops surrounding the yard to display their finished product, thus creating a variety of galleries to the public The corner facade of the building is of high significance as it provides key insight from the ring road and city center An open-glazed north-facing facade would be visually beneficial, as it will engage the building to the existing square.

AFRICA’S QUINTESSENTIAL METROPOLITANS OF THE TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY

Brazzaville – Kinshasa: has the postmodern urban planning succeeded or failed in world’s closest capitals?

28

AN EXCERPT


EXCERPTS Brazzaville and Kinshasa’s city plan, with main route

Socio-Spatial Inequality Broken because, social segregation, broken because of the blatant negligence of either cities’ spatial organisation and quality. To say either cities’ movement, beyond their main routes are complicated, would be an understatement. This is especially for the settlements, where a map would give you a misleading and inaccurate of what’s truly happening in either city, with numerous of dead streets, not actually being a dead-end street, instead, carrying on and on (Cuyvers et al. 2006:302). Spatial Organisation Ultimately, it is a combination of lack of master planning; long-term, strategic ideology and as usual; the ever-growing rate of urbanisation. Thus far, in the twenty-first century either cities, have implemented and benefited from immediate and short decision-making, which aren’t necessarily synergetic. This emphasises further the distinction in decision-making, therefore, the reality of the two cities compared to European cities. Because of master planning. presents the idea of ‘collective interest’.it promotes order, unity, integration and balance (Balbo 1993:24). By contrast, figure 4 shows that Brazzaville and Kinshasa do not promote integration, rather separation. There is no order, but disorder. There is no unity, but two cities, that are visibly marked, and separated from neighbourhood to neighbourhood. Physically, these neighbourhoods are side by side, but they are not a homogeneous whole. Instead, they are pieces put together, looking almost accidentally.

Brazzaville and Kinshasa’s urban breakdown

It is a dualistic approach of dealing with both cities (Balbo 1993:27). A plan that pushed the idea of social segregation, and it created the concept of ‘La Ville’ and ‘La Cité’ (Boeck 2011:266). ‘La Ville’; planned, housing the rich. ‘La Cité’; unplanned and slums. ‘La Cité, the equivalent of European suburbs, is an organic response to what is occurring in these cities. Yes, it is the same in European cities. But, the majority of these suburbs aren’t the controlled, planned response of urbanisation and growth as in Europe. In Brazzaville and Kinshasa, they are actually the combined by-product of colonialism and the fundamental issues aforementioned. They lack spatial organisation and unity. In Kinshasa, the physical division line of segregation marked by the Belgians, of strategically placed railway and green belt still exist. And the contrasting difference between the two realities is clearly defined by the spatial organisation (see figure 7). Brazzaville, may not have a clear tangible line, but the contrast can still be easily identified (see figure 6). What you see is the effect of the short-term planning in both cities, means dealing with one particular part of the city, actually gives birth to a new problem. In this scenario, Brazzaville and Kinshasa’s continued dualistic approach of their cities means, negligence in how ‘La Cité’ maintains itself, and grows. Hence, either over suffers from the random occupation of urban spaces, especially in the parts of the ‘La Cité’. This is particularly, taxing on Kinshasa more so than Brazzaville. The DRC’s rate of urbanisation is at a different pacing than of Brazzaville. Thus, making harder in the handling of communities and their settlements. Meaning, that the city is caught in ‘movement of capturing and letting’ go spaces becoming much harder to define or organise (Boeck 2011:269).

PAST WORK 2014-2017

2ND YEAR ARCHITECTURE PROJECT (2017)

The project is based on mending a discarded street, that suffered from a lack of engagement and safety issue. Thus, the intended response is to create a pedestrian-friendly plaza that would encourage integration between users. In addition, using the information gathered from the site, use the mixed neighborhood community of the area such as local and corporate businesses, leisure centers and housing communities to create spaces and buildings that would combine all those contexts. Elevating the quality of the street and increasing circulation and vitality.
