One of my favourite writing gigs last year was the profile of architect Spencer Fung for new men’s biannual, Wattswhat magazine. I visited Fung’s beautiful studio in West London (in fact, it’s ten minutes from my house! #winning), where he showed me his collection of natural curiosities and explained how nature and art inform his practice.
This is someone who picks up a piece of driftwood and sees a handle, or a heart shaped pebble that can manifest itself as anything from a piece of soap to a recurring graphic motif (Fung and his wife Teresa Roviras work regularly with eco lifestyle brand Bamford).
His Instagram is a delight if you want some everyday escapism – I love his watercolour sketches and visits to craft workshops.
Wattswhat magazine is available from magazine sellers in Germany, France, Canada, Japan, U.S.A and beyond, or via the website.
