Hi there! Well, I’m sure many of us who are watching snow fall out the window would not have a problem with a never-ending spring! Haha!
Jokes apart, designing for a foreign location, with a different history, culture, and in your case, a very different weather, is always a challenge. We must really get outside of our comfort zones and try to put ourselves in the shoes of those who will be using the spaces we are designing, people who are probably very different to us.
I guess you could say that architecture is a universal language. We architects (or future architects), all know the words, but just like with the spoken language, it’s important to use them with care and respect wherever our designs might take us 🙂
