"The architecture studio has been like a second home here at PDS. If anyone's ever looking for me, they can find me there. I love that we 'think with our hands' in the studio. Then, I took a philosophy course last year that was different from anything I've ever studied. It trained me to be skeptical and to analyze everything I do. I'm more present in my mind now, and a little less present in the actual world. I'm more curious about everything. I've seen this translating to architecture in the form of a desire to understand not just the physical structures of a piece but the ethical and philosophical concepts as well.
I've developed a keen interest in industrial design, specifically chairs. I like to look at designer chairs from all over the world, and from different time periods, and I think a lot of what was going on historically and philosophically in different eras is reflected in these complex designs. I haven't designed my own chairs yet ... I think it's going to take me several years."
