Christina PS

Graduate Architect Christina Palleschi
Graduating from the Curtin University with a Masters of Architecture, Christina’s Masters thesis explores the experiential and functional role architecture takes within the Urban Realm. With case study research Christina examined the role of streets, aesthetics and civic spaces. Particular focus was given to the City of Fremantle and how architecture has the capacity to redefine the important role of the street. Originally coming from a building background, Christina combines her excellent design theory with a solid practical knowledge of construction, detail and building administration
