Of the thesis entitled: Contact and Continuity
Wayfinding. Embodied learning. Craft Culture.
That material can harbour life inspires careful consideration of the craft of building. Building is the agency of architecture; material—its medium.
The act of building engages the whole body; touch, brings together mind, and material.
Guided by traditions of craft, I learn to work with wood, in order to explore the synergy between thinking and making, body and material, through the act of building a table, with my partner, and a tree-house, for a family in Waterloo, Ontario.
