Quality CAN BE SUBJECTIVE OR OBJECTIVE
Posted on: Wed 25 Nov 2020
Gerald Matthews from Matthews Architects joins Radio Adelaide Breakfast to discuss the importance of making something that lasts.
Matthews acknowledges quality and taste are not the same things and the stylistic choices we make daily are subjective. This concept is compared to wine, which Matthews says some people prefer the expensive, quality wine, and some prefer the taste of the cheaper alternative.
Through the lens of his own taste and understanding of style, Matthews aspires to make quality buildings that isn’t just popular at the time.
‘I don’t want people looking at my building in 100 years’ time, and think, well I guess it made sense at the time but its not really good anymore.’
Tom Mann and Zoe Kaunadis speak to Gerald Matthews from Matthews Architects to discuss more.
