Part sculptor, scientist, designer, and inventor Philip Beesley is much more than an architect.
Based in Toronto, Philip Beesley Architect Inc. (PBAI Studio) is a multi-disciplinary studio that creates installations designed to invigorate a viewer’s experience of space and material. Projects such as Sibyl, presented at the 18th Biennale of Sydney in 2012, feature intricate mesh work columns that flow and ripple replicating the movement of the ocean. Strange, surreal, yet closely connected to nature, Sibyl is representative of Beesley’s extensive practice.
Farmboy Fine Arts caught up with the architect to talk about his multi-disciplinary practice and how design can connect us to nature.
