I first realised the power of designed space when I visited a Yayoi Kusama exhibition in city gallery. Two years later it inspired me to begin my study in Architecture at Victoria University, Wellington.
In 2017 I completed my Masters of Architecture (Prof) with my thesis entitled ‘second-hand poetics: Dynamic shift from home to monument’. Here I explored theoretical convergence of nationality/ monumentality and homeliness. The surprise twist was that each of these was mobilised by an Antarctic story.
One day I hope to visit Antarctica for myself and see how the stories live up, in the meantime though I like to occupy my time with Aikido, reading, film, and Dungeons & Dragons.
