Architect and writer Terri Peters comments in her introduction: "At 3XN, architecture is everywhere, it is always the starting point and the answer to complex client briefs. The studio is concerned with all of the things around a building, how people use spaces, movement through the building and views inwards and outwards. It becomes clear in visiting a 3XN project that the office takes care to design buildings for people, for users, for passersby, for visitors, for locals and for future generations."
