Postgraduate Diploma in Design – A Research Study on Contextual Approach in Interior Architecture Design

I am an architect focusing on interior design. I have been working on hospitality and workspace projects in the past few years in Shanghai, China.

In this year of Postgraduate study at Otago Polytechnic, I have been working on the research of contextual values in architecture and interior design, and trialing the findings and ideas in a local healthcare interior design project. This has provided me the opportunity to investigate and interrogate the design approach in an academic depth, and enables my reflective thinking in my future practice.
