BluPrint Magazine's Feature Article on Platform 21 Architecture

"In the 21st century, functional objects can also be as beautiful as artwork. In the current times, it’s not enough that a structure looks beautiful and distinctive. It must also be filled with context and can last through time while still keeping in touch with the location’s culture. Platform 21 Architecture is one of those firms that practice this design approach through the production of eye-catching contemporary projects. Platform 21 is the result of shortening the phrase, “Platform for 21st Century Architecture”. In its name alone, the firm presents itself as a stage for those contemporary structures that stand for the present."
