In addition, she won the Thesis Award for her work –Delirium & Dogma– an exploration of post-pandemic, anxiety-driven design strategies within urban domestic architecture that attempt to redefine the concept of ‘Home’ as a place of refuge. The work considered how our both rational and irrational fears institute long-lasting urban typologies that then further substantiate and exacerbate those fears while becoming written into increasingly anxiety-based building codes. Lina’s interest in the experiential qualities and psychological effects of design extends to her focus on representation in her architecture and graphic design practice. Her love of art, learning, and craft inspire recent interests such as visiting museums, roasting coffee beans, collecting frog illustrations, or restoring vintage film cameras.
