design process

Brook believes in designing through contextual research delving into site, human, and material histories. The resultant is appropriate novel contexts that enhances the site's imbued phenomenological and sensorial qualities. In this approach, environmental concerns are always at the forefront, as is our responsibility as designers in the Post-Anthropocene Age.
