Hello, my name is Selwyn Q Bachus II.
I am a current Master in Architecture II student at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design, and a 2019 graduate of the Fay Jones School of Architecture+Design at the University of Arkansas.
Aspects of design that I find exciting include computational fabrication, color composition, and community engagement. These interests were preceded by childhood experimentation with art in various mediums, and it was these early experiences that led to my decision to pursue a career in design. Architecture allows me to continue my childhood love of artistic experimentation, while also crafting concrete ideas that can positively affect the built environment and the communities within.
After earning my masters, I want to develop a teaching, working, speculative and philanthropic model of practice and pedagogy. A design collective based on alliances with minority communities, and an educational model that inspires young minority designers through appropriate representation at the university level. I also want to speculate on community-based design-build projects, focused on manipulating low cost materials for aesthetic pleasure and delivering projects at a low building cost through community volunteerism.
Thank you for visiting my website, and feel free to contact me!
