My favourite struc­ture (de­signed by some­one else): Busaras, the mod­ernist cen­tral bus sta­tion in Dublin, Ire­land, is my favourite struc­ture, de­signed by Michael Scott. I am in­spired by: Eileen Gray, an Ir­ish ar­chi­tect and de­signer. She was a pi­o­neer of con­tem­po­rary mod­ern ar­chi­tec­ture and fur­ni­ture de­sign. Her last work, E-1027 in 1929, a mod­ernist villa in south of France, is now a French Na­tional Cul­tural Mon­u­ment. I also ad­mire the early 1980s post-mod­ernist work of An­gelo Donghia, an Amer­i­can de­signer. In­te­rior de­sign to me is: Func­tion, Prac­ti­cal­ity and Beauty. I wish I had de­signed (and how would that have been dif­fer­ent from now): I wished, I had de­signed The Miller House and Gar­den, lo­cated in Colum­bus, In­di­ana. It was de­signed by Eero Saari­nen and epit­o­mizes the mod­ernist ar­chi­tec­ture with its open and flow­ing lay­out, flat roof and stone and glass walls. I love the clean lines in the aes­thetic and de­tailed yet min­i­mal façade. It’s so per­fect that I wouldn’t change any­thing about it. My sig­na­ture de­sign el­e­ment (one el­e­ment with­out which no de­sign of yours seems com­plete): Shadow gaps and bronze me­tal would be my sig­na­ture de­sign el­e­ments. To un­wind I (hob­bies other than ar­chi­tec­ture): I am so pas­sion­ate about art and ev­ery­thing re­lated to de­sign and fash­ion, that I have not had a chance to think or pur­sue a hobby in a space that is be­yond this area. If I was not an ar­chi­tect: I would have loved to be a vis­ual artist. Any­thing that in­volves cre­at­ing, prac­tis­ing or demon­strat­ing art fas­ci­nates me. So­ci­ety In­te­ri­ors to me is: A lead­ing mag­a­zine that cap­tures the lat­est trends in in­te­rior dec­o­ra­tion space.
