Grew up in Scotland, just finished my architecture masters in Holland, slowly turning in to an architect. Studied at the Glasgow School of Art, worked in London and Bath, found some time in between to travel and study in India, Brazil, North America.
Currently workawaying on building sites in the south of France and looking for office work in Paris or Brussels
Nothing ventured, nothing gained, etc.
"Many people nowadays live in a series of interiors...disconnected from each other. On foot everything stays connected, for while walking one occupies the spaces between those interiors in the same way one occupies those interiors. One lives in the whole world rather than in interiors built up against it." - RS
