How has what you do made an impact on your life?
Design is a collaborative and integrative process where art meets science and reflect the values of functional notion of Utopia. Design is powerful force in my life, it is inspiring, empowering and enlightening to solve a practical problem through a holistic and sustainable approach.
Forward thinkers inspire me, and that spark of ingenuity is at the heart of what we do. At MIDORI, we are dedicated to providing contemporary design solutions for more efficient, healthier environments in which to work, play and live.
What is the greatest challenge you have faced getting to where you are today? How has that shaped you?
Life requires risks if we are going to get anywhere! Starting Midori Architects was a natural step in my journey. The same year that I decided to start my practice Midori Architects, I found out I was pregnant with Liya. It has been a challenging three years since, with its fair share of ups and downs. Though it all, I learned that patience and a positive attitude can overcome the worst hardships.
What did you want to be when you grew up? What options seemed open or closed to you, if any?
I have been fascinated with buildings ever since I started playing with my brother’s Lego sets as a child. This spark eventually turned into a lifelong passion that would shape my career. My path started out in trying to balance my flair for engineering and passion for the arts. As an innovator, I wanted to approach design challenges with a fresh, unique, modern sustainable perspective that crafts spaces for life well lived.
