Milano

Ciao!  Whilst meandered the picturesque streets of Milano this weekend I tried to encapsulate the experience of travel and its affect on me and my work.  When co-founding a studio back in '07, travel was considered a fundamental element of practicing architecture.  Architecture is far from just being about buildings.  Ultimately, people should be the catalyst to creating or defining wholesome architecture and objects, be it through collaboration, consultation or communal working.

Its funny, 'wholesome' is a word typically used to describe food but after checking the definition I can't help but think I might start using the term 'wholesome architecture' in future.
