about

I entered into the field of Architecture for my admiration of the craft. However, less than halfway through my undergraduate education, I discovered I found little interest in playing the role of Architect, in designing spaces that humbly obey our commands of form and function, for I grew to realize these spaces in time learn to disobey our commands of form and function. My attention started to veer towards Historic Preservation, the chance to study Architecture’s ability to convey the past to our present day. I caught sight of the history that bears no permanence in memory, forgotten and only to be absorbed by the walls that bore witness to it — a romanticized notion to say the least, but one that had captivated me. This is why I have chosen the path of the Preservationist.
