Question & Answer

What influences does your heritage have on your work?

My heritage has a huge influence on my work. I break it down into three primary areas: architecture, stories and dialogue. Architecture helps me better understand my environment. Stories help me understand how the environment came to be. And dialogue helps me to connect with people to gain a deeper understanding of history, the present, and how people react to a place and think about life.
