To gain greater experience in Architectural design and its practical applications through built form and other media. I intend to further develop my architectural design language and the implications of architecture on society and culture by examining the impact of contextual relationships, tectonics, form, sound, and light in pursuit of a powerful, meaningful, phenomenological architecture.
