Telling Architecture (the Hidden Stories of Buildings)

BY ABIGAIL HURST
@ VOL 39 ON APR 27, 2019

Writer and Registered Architect Abigail Hurst founded her own local practice in 2018, Tell Architecture Ltd, in order to combine her architectural education and training with her passion for writing. Abigail aims to design buildings that tell stories and write stories that Tell Architecture to help people comprehend, discover and connect to spaces, buildings, and cities. Abigail will relate a series of buildings personal to her, and the stories of how they have shaped her life. This journey will lead you to her practice today, and a proposal for a fresh way of telling the hidden stories of architecture, through the intersection of two disciplines: drawing and writing, to bring meaning and richness to our lives.
