Bachelor of Art + Design (Honours), 2010
Interior Designer with architecture, interior and urban design firm Jasmax.
Patricia’s Honours project Fresh Farms advanced a vision of sustainable urban farming in Auckland. Vegetable gardens would be seeded in unused spaces in the industrial Penrose/Onehunga area, growing over time to become a green infrastructure. Employers would offer industrial workers time to contribute to their gardens, and produce would be bought and sold at a new market integrated with the platforms of the Penrose Train Station. Recycled materials are employed to create a variable urban texture: a playful and growing fibrous landscape.
