I’ve moved over dozen and half times since I was born, from countryside to cities, houses to apartments. I’ve also lived in nine different cities across five different nations. I’m a believer in environmental determinism, and that environment has huge impact on both the occupant’s physical and mental wellbeing. I believe productivity is a product of mentality, and mentality is the product of a designed space. I see architecture as more than a visual relic of culture, but rather an active advocate in changing not just how the space looks, but also how it’s used.
