Four years ago, I made the choice to part ways with the traditional practice of architecture in search of something more rewarding. I left behind a salary and good friends. I left a job that supported my family but one that left me creatively unfulfilled.
I made this short film - as with everything I make in my studio - as an experiment. It's a story about my struggle to pursue a more creative life. It isn’t really about architecture, or design or me in particular. It’s a story about something we all struggle with. How do we make the most of our short time here? How do we ensure we’re doing the work that makes us most happy? How do we reconcile our need to feel necessary, useful, and creative with the financial reality of making a life, supporting ourselves, our families?
To see how things turned out, you can watch it here (8m33s). I hope it empowers you to seek out the things that make you feel most alive, most fulfilled; the things that bring you happiness.
