Recently, I was asked by an interviewer, “What is your style?”
This question is often asked, and not just of architects, but creatives of all sorts: fashion, graphics, advertising, cuisine, etc. The media typically aims to capture one’s design philosophy in a sound bite digestible by mainstream readers.
Many interior decorators have a packaged response. I hear words like “eclectic,” “warm and welcoming,” “contemporary, but timeless.” I am not sure what kind of design results from this mash up of clichés.
Architects have a hard time speaking of their style.
