Gran has been an extremely welcoming workplace for me since I began here. The team is filled with lovely personalities and truly inspiring backstories and work ethics that I really look up to.
Jenny joined Gran as a Student Architect, and assists with drafting and documentation as well as helping arrange project files and material samples.
Jenny is currently near the end of her second year of studying for a Bachelor of Design in Architecture at the University of Sydney.
Once she completes her undergraduate degree, she hopes to continue with a post graduate degree – either Master of Architectural Science (Sustainable Design), or a Master of Architecture.
“It’s really nice to be able to gain insight and learn hands-on from the real world practice of architecture …”
It’s interesting to see all the time and effort that is put in behind the scenes of, not only a building, but an important place for people …”
As part of a university project last year, Jenny wrote a paper on biomimicry in architecture. It piqued her interest in innovative sustainable possibilities in the built environment and, in particular, in moulding biology into everyday living:
“I’m hoping to pursue an architectural career dedicated to the sustainable, bio-world of infrastructure.”
Fun fact: Jenny’s met her first-ever birthday buddy at Gran! She shares her birthday with Lisa. (Double cake for us all next July, even it it must be virtual!)
