Time is a Great Architect

“The thing about time being gold is a big stupidity. Time is life. I am interested in living it.” ~ architect Rogelio Salmona

I am amazed at the huge difference that can be made by thoughtfully-designed spaces, especially if the design (which may be invisible at first glance) has an impact on acoustics and sound.

When not at work, I enjoy scuba diving and photographing cities at night. My biggest pet peeve? Walking barefoot on a dusty floor!
