Student Profile

Tamadher Alfahal, MA Interior Architecture and Design graduate

Moments of inspiration cannot be pinned down to one or two; it was everywhere around me! It was in Graham’s lectures and his morning chats. It was within my colleagues, their design approaches and how they see things different than the way I do. It was in my course director, Delia and her encouraging tutorials and constant encouraging talks. Inspiration was the soul of the course, was ongoing until the end.
