Canadian architect Alison Brooks came to London in the 1980s, "a city of super interesting, creative people" that "invites everyone to live and work here." How has one of the world's most beloved cities changed over the past three decades? And how did the award-winning architect start her practice at a time when there were hardly any female architects with their own practice?
She also talks about what changes she expects to see in the profession, for example due to climate change, and what changes are currently taking place in the collective consciousness: "We've been trying to keep nature out for a long time, and now we're trying to make nature-friendly architecture." In this episode she explains how that might work.
