Mar 2021Multiform

David has contributed an essay to a special edition of AD magazine entitled Multiform. Edited by Owen Hopkins and Erin McKellar, the issue "makes the case for the transformative possibilities offered by an approach that is ad hoc, eclectic and pluralist." David's essay, "Perceiving Postmodernism: Lessons from London's Marshlands," takes readers on a journey from central London to its periphery, encountering projects by the practice and landscapes that have informed its design approach.
