“The buildings and structures that surround us form the everyday landscapes of our lives. They constitute a visual record of our existence and act as a reminder of our temporality. I am interested in the way we respond to these landscapes and how they can exclude, alienate, reassure or bolster. I am curious about whose actions and decisions shape them, how people appraise and value them, seek to protect them or change them.”
