'Ideas fuel design. The main source of those ideas are the people we work with. You'll meet some of them in this book. The richness of their ideas and their influence on our design is where the utility, delight and longevity of our projects is generated.' - Metropolitan Workshop

...'That's what Metropolitan Workshop are getting right at Pocket Living's tall building in Wandsworth. I was honoured they asked me to help them work with the German cladding manufacturer (NBK) to see if he could replicate what could be achieved in the studio on the cladding panels for the building to add life to the surface, achieve some subtle variations.'
