Objects you keep around the studio for inspiration: “Books, books, books. One of my current favorites is one a friend gave me about the Japanese architect Junya Ishigami. The inspiration for his projects usually comes from outside the actual space he’s working on. It could be anything from the natural environment around the space to ponds and planets. It could be an imaginary environment that he sees, too. The environment and the building become indistinguishable. I think it’s really interesting to think of the balance between what I make and the character of the space.”
