My name is j‘ and I am currently Vice Chair of Sanctuary Scotland Housing Association and Designer in Residence (Architecture) at Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen. I founded the company insideout by design; which is operated by students, to support community wellbeing and viability through design. Specifically, through installing community portals within school, housing and office grounds. Community portals act as thresholds between buildings and nature. Specifically supporting being outside and connecting with nature in everyday activities. Our focus is on encouraging and supporting; learning, expression, collaboration and sustainability.
