Derrie Pearson is a recent graduate in architecture and since July has been the MERZARTITECT’ in residence. Derrie has been working on the design of a small off-grid studio in the small wood at MERZ, exploring how self-sufficient buildings might be constructed from recycled and ready-to hand materials, including local clay, tyres or reclaimed timber. Derrie has been working with young model makers to explore how they would envisage living in and around Sanquhar as climate change dictates that we ‘change places’. Derrie is from Kelloholm, near Sanquhar and now lives in Copenhagen after graduating from Glasgow University.
