Ontological Design is this idea that everything we design, in turn, designs us back. That through architecture, lighting, texture, sound, taste, words and experiences we can change how we think and how we feel.
My commitment is to use Space and Experience to design a better world. A world where we can redefine our connection with other, self and nature. A regenerative world where we give more than we take.
In recent years I’ve shifted my work towards this through the design and development of Metamodern Villages, intentional spaces and immersive narrative experiences to foster Ektasis, Catharsis and Communitas. I believe behavior is a function of culture. If we change culture, everything changes.
