Our research is primarily based around the work of our practice, TAKA Architects, both complete and ongoing. The ambition is that through the process of uncovering motivations we will become more aware of why and how we practice.
My interest lies with the building as an artefact, rather than as a vehicle for architectural theory. By examining the building (or series of buildings), I can extrapolate the values and working methods of the practice. In an examination of a largely intuitive design process, starting with the artefact avoids rhetoic.
