RIGHT NOW WE all need a hug — so let's collectively embrace and share in congratulating everyone in coming through the endurances of the last five months and producing an extraordinary body of outstanding work.
In architecture we concern ourselves with the making of spaces for people to convive, so it has been challenging to experience a city without people, and public life flattened to the screen surface. It has also been a reminder that learning happens in a social dimension where creative thinking and practice can thrive. Studio culture nurtures trust between us through the embodied actions of talking, drawing and making. The translation of many of these things into our online world has only reminded us of the power of physical places to shape experiences and stimulate our imaginations.
