In Iraq, many of my female friends were architects and professionals with a lot of power during the 1980s while all the men were at war in Iran.
Architecture is unnecessarily difficult. It's very tough.
What's nice about concrete is that it looks unfinished.
I find industrial cities exciting. I like their toughness.
My buildings are not particularly expensive. It is not a tin shed. If you want a tinny car, you pay for that.
I can't focus when there's too many things around. Whenever I used to go to the office, I used to always say, 'Tidy up.'
