What is your favorite part in a project?
The early stages definitely carries lots of interesting process, I also enjoy when the final products come along with the initial planning.

What does wayfinding mean to you?
Wayfinding is a very important aspect of our daily life and has been neglected for so long that it should be given the rightful place on the drawing board. It is user oriented and drivers its approach and its interventions from the behavioral and psychological foundations of wayfinding.
