As an academic and an architect, I'm fascinated by the relationship between time and building, between architecture, which, on the face of the part of the permanent, and interior design, which is the art of the ephemeral.

Goethe described architecture as frozen music, but I would argue that's it's not frozen at all. Architecture, interiors, landscapes evolve, over time, and trace patterns as subtle as a sonata or a symphony - only so slowly that we hardly see it happen.

I've worked in this field as a journalist, as the writer of non fiction, and as the author of academic papers, and my written work is an attempt to find ways of talking and writing about the strange and beautiful ways in which the environments around us change and grow from, minute to minute, day to day, century to century.
