Just wanted to let you all know that I am finally back from my trip to the Netherlands and Scandinavia, and I will have a lot to report in the coming weeks. I managed to interview Koen Olthius of Waterstudio.nl, the Dutch architect who designs floating homes, and Joost Van Brug – the Dutch blogger behind fabulous design blog Reluct. I also toured the Droog studio and checked out the latest student work from Eindhoven, as well as catching up with Alver Aalto’s buildings in Helsinki, Steven Holl’s Kiasma Museum in Helsinki and Calatrava’s Turning Torso in Malmo. Good stuff will be coming your way soon!

I want to apologize for being MIA for so long. I meant to publish some of my interviews while travelling, but unfortunately my computer and my luggage got “lost” by the Celebrity Cruise ship I was travelling on, so I lost most of my work as well as my connection to the outside world. (For more on this fishy incident, click here >).

Here are a couple pics of my trip, and stay tuned for much more in the coming weeks.
Check out my Flickr feed for a preview of what’s to come…

And if any of you out there are lawyers who might have some legal eagle words of wisdom for me, please get in touch with me!

And now for the sneak peek:
