My name is Guled Abdulwasi I am a student of Architecture at Deakin University and a multi-disciplined artist, I aspire to better understand the connection between people and their environment. Architecture and our natural environment are companions. It is impossible to design good buildings without understanding their relationship to the natural and artificial systems around them. It is also difficult to comprehend the natural environment without knowing how it is affected by human interaction. My design principles draw from these concepts; the interaction between buildings and their natural environment, the influence of human social connections and their impact on the design of a space, and how these combined factors create memorable and unmemorable experiences.
