    What if Architecture Looked like me? A Photographic Essay

    Author:

Abstract

The title of this essay derives from my ongoing reflection of architectural practice and the role of my own culture and identity in shaping it. As a graduate of the Sheffield School of Architecture, I critically reflect on where my journey has taken me since my days in the Arts Tower. I explore how the agency of starting an architectural studio has led to opportunities of personal and cultural expression. My studio, SPATIAL-ESK, seeks to hold no restrictions when it comes to collaboration. To date, I have worked with hip-hop artists, poets, artists and coders. The main premise of these collaborations is to forget my preconceptions for what counts as a typical architectural project. On the other hand, what is brought to mind is how the identity, experience and culture of the architect and client can create new and original projects.
