Experience the translation of Southern Californian architecture into a contemporary Berlin home, and venture to a Baltic Sea island retreat designed to immerse in untamed nature.

In an exclusive interview, South African-born architect and curator Sumayya Vally reflects on the role of identity, belonging, and cultural hybridity in shaping unconventional architectural narratives. Explore the intertwined realms of creativity and community at Hvitträsk, the early Finnish home of Eliel and Loja Saarinen.
