FLORIAN BEIGEL & SIGNY SVALASTOGA
"It is with huge sadness to note the passing of Florian Beigel and Signy Svalastoga. My first task with Signy was to draw a childhood memory, in a new technique that I was unfamiliar with. She encouraged me to free up and explore my own observations through beautiful, hand crafted drawings. This way of approaching design allowed me to flourish a year later with Florian, who introduced me to a new way of seeing – in childlike manner without preconceptions. His passion, precision and beautiful intelligence was a huge inspiration on my education. Both are a huge loss to The Cass, but their legacy and approach to architecture and design has been cemented through generations of young architects under their tutorship."
