OLIVIA PAGE Architect & Bio-Material Maker
I am investigating the biological wastes of our cities, the rural and industries; researching manufacturing techniques, maker-spaces and waste producers. I aim to; reduce our landfills, support bio-diversity, remove the need for oil-based products, to support and create local businesses to construction sites. By working alongside construction sites, auditing and mapping the area for its local biological waste, I suggest construction materials to a specific local area. I imagine the architectural applications of these materials and I want to scale them up; collecting, testing, and manufacturing them. My past experience includes; research into earth construction and locally available materials within construction; schools; environmentally conscious and green design; craft-ship; participatory design; Permaculture; community engagement. Skills: Fluent English and Portuguese, AutoCAD, Google SketchUp, Adobe Creative and Microsoft. Rhino,Vectorworks and Allplan. email@example.com
