Designing buildings & cities for an evolving future is very exciting. I ask how can they respond flexibly and sustainably to changing circumstances, new technologies & innovations that we can’t predict but can only imagine? How deeply can we engage with communities, investors, decision makers, and a range of cultural contexts to provide clients with a cost effective and practical design solution that is also an exemplar of design excellence? Such challenges excite me, and the opportunity to work from a global platform is a great privilege and responsibility.
