From Sydney to Sri Lanka, Qatar to India, our three speakers have each made their mark designing restaurants, hotels and museums.
In this session of Artichoke Night School, we ask three designers and architects how they gained a foothold in a foreign place, how they oversaw the process from their Australian studio, and the challenges and opportunities involved in such work.
