London-based architect Níall McLaughlin joins the podcast to discuss the completion of the Faith Museum at Auckland Castle, his team's approach to designing spiritual spaces, and how a client-focused design process helps to develop his architectural language.

“There was a period of time over the last 20 years where architects were trying to be the 'stars of the party' by foregrounding the experience of the architecture over the potential experiences to be had in the building. That's not really how I see the role of architecture. I think the best architecture operates almost subliminally, framing and situating our experiences but allowing room for people to create experiences within it.”
