Vanessa’s recommended book is Good to Great, Jim Collins.
Her favourite building is the Monadnock building in Chicago for its role in driving innovation in building upwards during the late 19th century.
Vanessa’s emerging theme to watch out for is the role of public data in so far as how it interacts with the built environment; who will own it and how will it be used?
