For Swiss Architect Roman Burkard, architecture defines as a constant interaction between its presence in society and its technological aspects. Therefore, his own work is shaped by communicating with people about these forces and having a clear point of view on them. Looking back at his childhood, Burkard identifies early influences for his career. His father, with whom he now shares the Burkard Burkard AG, is a construction manager. Bringing his son to his sites gave Burkard the opportunity to get to know his father’s world. He is also very interested in understanding the way society works within architecture. “How is a one-family house designed in the British countryside as opposed to Vietnam? And why is it that way?” he asks.
