Luke Mackenzie

Mackenzie Luke (b. 2000) is a multidisciplinary designer and thinker. Her West Indian upbringing has significantly influenced her approach to design. She takes pride in her openness to experimentation in technique and her dedication to answering big questions through architectural research. Her personal interests and research lie in post-colonial landscapes, memory, and community. Mackenzie’s work delves into the rich cultural heritage and socio-political dynamics of the Caribbean region, especially her homeland, Barbados. Ongoing questions in her practice and life include: how do landscapes influence the way we live?; what are different forms of resistance in space?; how can we reinterpret history to speculate/create radical futures?; how can we value communities over property?
