Hi, I’m Emily Ashby, and I find joy in designing and creating.  I have deep appreciation for food, fashion, art, card-making, music, poetry, landscape, and especially, architecture.

Architecture is designed and experienced personally and communally, and I bring a deep conviction that it should engage the individual and enrich the community on a variety of scales, ranging from a pavilion to a housing complex or infrastructural system. Among broad education and research in diverse perspectives and techniques, I find particular interest in studying typology and form through design.

I experiment with pairing innovative parametric design methodology with tactile analog design processes to develop dynamic design iterations that respond to data-driven and/or implied existing environment and conditions. I hope to design not only in response to current ways of existing and relating, but also to use design as means of reinventing the way we perceive, interact, and relate.
