Prova has enjoyed completing Master of Architecture in Liverpool, and now in her free time enjoys delving into drawing, photography and travelling. Having lived in three continents, she believes architecture is more than design, it's about people.
Architecture is dynamic and fluid. It's about taking an interest in people, in every aspect - whether that maybe knowing about current affairs or talking to strangers from a different background to yours. It's all enriching experiences that lead to a better understanding of people, and ultimately better design.
