The East End Independent Interviews Deborah Berke About Her Philosophies on Design and Life

May 22, 2019

The East End Independent interviewed Deborah Berke about her philosophy on design and life. “Architecture is great and it’s a rich and rewarding field, but I think it is much healthier for architects to be broadly engaged and interested in society and in other fields. So, work hard as you design, in addition to visiting and really “seeing” buildings and spaces by others. Also read a novel. Go to a concert. Explore a part of the city you’ve never visited. It will improve your architecture in ways you can’t predict.” Pictured is the interior of BookHampton, which we redesigned a couple of years ago to bring more natural light into the charming seaside shop.
