Meet Shiv!

#JOINTHETEAM

'Hi, Iím Shiv! Iím from Sri Lanka and moved to good olí Manchester to study architecture and never left. During my year in industry, I worked at BCA Landscape, who are a Liverpool based Landscape Architecture practice. The project I most enjoyed working on was a large themed play area as a part of the islands project for Chester Zoo, which was an amazing experience. Despite being back on an architecture course, I am interested in the design and organisation of the surrounding landscape in addition to the architecture.'

Meet Rosie!

'Hi, Iím Rosie and I am looking forward to meeting you all for our events project! I am new to Manchester School of Architecture this year after studying for my undergraduate degree at Leicester School of Architecture as part of De Montfort University. After this I took two years out working at a residential practice in London where I mainly worked on high end residential projects. I loved the time I spent at work as seeing drawings become a reality through construction is what really excites me about architecture. I am currently part of CIA and really enjoy the challenge of designing projects based on a realistic brief that could easily become reality. I am really excited about our events project and the opportunity to combine art and architecture. I canít wait to see what you all come up with!'

Meet Nick!

#JOINTHETEAM

'Hey! I'm Nick and I'm really excited to be part of Art x Paradise. Originally from London, I completed my Part I at the University of Edinburgh, which I absolutely loved. In my placement year, I had two jobs. Firstly, I worked for Weston Williamson + Partners, an award-winning architecture practice, specialising in infrastructure, urban regeneration and place making in the UK and abroad. Here, I worked primarily on Paddington Crossrail Station. Secondly, I worked for Charcoalblue LLP, which is an innovative theatre and acoustics consultancy firm; this gave me the opportunity to combine my love of architecture and theatre. I am currently in USE and enjoy design that focuses on iterative production, model making, and alternative theory. I look forward to meeting you soon!'

Meet Sandhya!

#JOINTHETEAM

'Heyyy Ė Iím Sandhya. Iím from Nottingham and I did my undergraduate degree at Manchester. During my year out, I worked for Leonard Design Architects, who are a design-led architectural practice with offices in London, Nottingham, Kuala Lumpur and Sydney. The practiceís work varies in typology and scale: from the masterplanning of city centres to the design of one off boutique retail units. I worked predominantly on a range of residential projects, which included apartments, private homes and mixed-use masterplanning. The atelier that I am currently in is USE. I love combining architecture with art and having the chance to test the boundaries of traditional architectural discourse. I love being creative through painting, drawing and making. Working with the artists at Paradise works will be such an exciting process Ė I canít wait!'
