Kelly Bapty

NRTF Masters Scholarship
Architecture and Landscape Architecture

I am driven by the urge to serve my people and honour my ancestors’ ecological, political and cultural continuum, to propel First Nations forward within contemporary society. My approach is an exploration of organic form, an inquiry guided by the necessity to nurture and grow an understanding of land use and architecture. My work seeks to act and develop new understandings from within, with an emphasis on fostering community, on seasons and climate, on harmony and a non-threatening view of nature.
