Upon graduating from the University of Bath, Alina developed a particular interest in the intricate mechanisms between the living environment and community behaviour. Using the strong links that architecture projects within sociology, psychology and social culture as inspiration, she tests architectural design as an intervention to enhance the connection between identity, action and spatial composition. Her projects establish environments that positively impact communities and people, create memories, and bring a stronger sense of belonging.
