We love what you’re doing. You’ve covered a lot already, in such a short amount of time. What would you say is your favourite era of architecture? Or which city’s architecture are you most inspired by?

I honestly have a hard time pin pointing what my favourite “era” or architecture would be. At risk of sounding too cliche, I really have fallen in love with the huge variety I have witnessed from neighbourhood to neighbourhood, city to city. I would say in hugely general terms, and as a non-expert in architecture, that I am a big fan of a lot of the architecture from the early 20th century. It all is so different as you travel, and I find it oozes the hope presumably had by many of the architects for what they believed to be possible heading into the modern era. I personally feel like we just don’t have enough of that optimism anymore. 

It is really hard for me to choose which city I’ve been most inspired by, architecturally speaking. If pressed, I would say Barcelona and the Modernista (or Catalan Modernism I think is the other name) architecture which is prevalent in Eixample. The use of space, light, geometry, the environment, and ultimately the long term planning put into those buildings is nothing short of astounding. Not to mention all of the references found all over the work of those architects to nature, and other architecture that came before it. They are absolutely masterpieces.

sorry to bother my lovely followers but does anyone have any good recommendations for some catchy dance or hip-hop music? 

I don’t care if it’s brand new or a classic from the Space Jam soundtrack tbh

please and thank you!
