Spencer Fung profile for Wattswhat magazine

Spencer Fung profile by Navaz Batliwalla wattswhat magazine

One of my favourite writing gigs last year was the profile of architect Spencer Fung for new men’s biannual, Wattswhat magazine. I visited Fung’s beautiful studio in West London (in fact, it’s ten minutes from my house! #winning), where he showed me his collection of natural curiosities and explained how nature and art inform his practice.

This is someone who picks up a piece of driftwood and sees a handle, or a heart shaped pebble that can manifest itself as anything from a piece of soap to a recurring graphic motif (Fung and his wife Teresa Roviras work regularly with eco lifestyle brand Bamford).

His Instagram is a delight if you want some everyday escapism – I love his watercolour sketches and visits to craft workshops.

Wattswhat magazine is available from magazine sellers in Germany, France, Canada, Japan, U.S.A and beyond, or via the website.
