I’m an urban creature, with a particular liking for industrial environments. I’ve always lived in cities and feel a connection to the many successes and struggles that they, and the people living in them, experience. The architecture is a great reflection of these booms and slumps, giving a sense of people and their communities, the broader society, attitudes and economy, though they often lead to a lot more questions than answers.
