Scaffold Episode 40: Adam Caruso

This week's Scaffold Podcast is an interview with architect Adam Caruso.

This episode of Scaffold is an interview with architect and co-founder of Caruso St. John, Adam Caruso. 

"[When we started our practice] we were really interested in the syntax of architecture - how you make a brick wall, how you make an opening - and we believed that the syntax of architecture held within it the culture of architecture. And the reason we concentrated on that rather than the semiotics of architecture is that we didn’t believe so much in a shared language [for architecture to speak symbolically]. We live in a society that’s diverse and globalised, and I’m trying to find positive ways of engaging with those things”

Adam Caruso
