I believe every intervention should respect and honor the space it occupies. The architecture, development, and construction industries have a responsibility to develop projects that serve a legitimate function and fit the needs of those who utilize it. The industry also has a responsibility to the environment. Designers should seek to protect nature and work with it when creating new infrastructure. As a future architect and developer, I hope to use my abilities that I have gained through my education to influence sustainable projects that put people and place at the forefront.
