Omar Gandhi joins the podcast to discuss the pressure of designing around national landmarks, his approach to the business of architecture, and the role of collaboration within his practice.
"When the initial renderings got out there of the proposal, there was immediate backlash. People were protesting with picket signs—and part of me couldn't blame them because we see so many of these special things in our cities and in our communities ruined by a developer or a mindless approach to something. At that moment it really became about us believing and knowing that this was going to make Peggy's Cove that much more special."
