Jessica’s work during her time at the LSA has focused on the idea of valuing what we already have. This idea underpinned her thesis, ‘Value V Value’, which looked at how the architecture community and the wider world needs to see embodied carbon on par with the historical value of buildings when considering demolition. In addition to looking at how we can better implement a reduce, reuse and recycle mentality within the architecture profession. Her final project then put these theories into practice in ‘Home Again’, which looked to refurbish an existing estate and its public realm whilst retaining as much of the existing structures, trees and materials found on-site as possible.
Jessica completed her Part 1 at The Bartlett UCL and worked for three years at Daab Design in London for her years out where she was involved in a variety of projects at different scales.
