ON REIMAGINING THE BUILT ENVIRONMENT:
“Our built environment should be a reflection of our natural environment. It should employ all the best aspects of our natural environment and blur the lines between built and natural. Our built environment needs to be regenerative, giving back more than it takes for the world. Most importantly, I hope to show that building a regenerative future is not only the only way to build but that it also benefits people and profit.”
ON A FUTURE THEY WANT TO LIVE IN:
“I want to live in a future where people work together to solve the climate crisis instead of disagreeing over its existence. In a world where not only do we treat people equally, but we support and empower those who have historically and systematically been discriminated against to help them gain equality. I want a future where we build things unimaginable today, but transform the way we live for the better.”
