How will we design, create and invent? Who and what will shape the culture, and how?
My childhood was peculiar and troubled, filled with constant change, movement, struggle and instability. I recall with precision the way I saw things as a young girl. In the course of my career, that lack of certainty has imbued enormous creative escape and provided me with a great gift for telling each project’s story at its very core. I have preserved an edge by using those subconscious feelings to create others’ conscious environments, and to fill them with belonging, permanence and wonder. I have invested my life in the study of human design and its effects on design and architecture. Like most, I’ve learned by committing many mistakes. I have encountered many challenging concepts (and more than a little irony) when confronted with the fact that the process of inventing creates beautiful objects that mark our history, and that those very things that bring us joy also contribute to change.
