There are moments in your professional career where you encounter pure inspiration. For me, this came in the form of the Dutch firm MVRDV‘s work. When I was in Holland 5 years ago, I rode across the country visiting all of their completed work. Coming out of school and seeing design-intensive, theoretical work actually built, not just talked about was just what I needed to push myself.
