Hello, my name is Winnie Wong and I am a local born Chinese Geordie! I decided to do my MA Urban Design at Newcastle University, after graduating from my Bachelors in Architecture and Urban Planning in summer 2018; from the same university. I wanted to stay in the city because I believe that there are a lot of opportunities for development and would like to be part of that process. An area of Urban Design that I find interesting are the definitions of public and private space, which led me to focus my dissertation on the unused spaces for future homes in a populated city. My interests stemmed further in to public furniture after I voluntarily designed some modal filters for the Transport Department at Newcastle City Council. During my spare time I enjoy doing photography, volunteering at Vane Gallery and taking part in creative events. I hope you will understand me more through reading my blog post!
