Make Life Better: The Will Alsop Experience

Make Life Better: The Will Alsop Experience

World-renowned architect, Will Alsop, talks about his unique approach to design, art, modernism and urbanism to name but a few aspects of the breadth of his approach ‘from teaspoon to city’.

Will has a longstanding connection with our country in that his very first design project, at six years old, was a house for his mother to live in with the specifications that it must be built in New Zealand. We are pleased to have worked in association with Productspec, Resene and GIB to bring Will to the source of his childhood inspiration.
