Architecture in an urban context is an exciting, energetic context to work in. With so many restrictions, and equal opportunities, the design inspirations are endless.
Due to the density of most urban spaces, the challenge of working in very confined spaces is always one that an architect or designer needs to overcome; but I believe that beautiful design really showcases itself when presented with tight restrictions.
Every city has a host of leftover spaces which is so easily discarded and abandoned. Pet Architecture, however, is an enticing idea of maximising the use of these spaces to create user friendly, accessible spaces that spread positive spaces across the urbanscape.
