“We’ve ended up stranded but it’s a really beautiful island and it’s virus-free,” Trevor said. Papageorgiadis and Trevor came to the island for a project and, despite being stranded there, have continued their work.
“We’re using our extended stay to research local materials like driftwood and coral that we’ve discovered in the local village,” Papageorgiadis explained.
Papageorgiadis’s video message also features in the VDF launch movie alongside contributions from 34 other architects, designers and artists in lockdown around the world, including Stefano Giovanni, Es Devlin, Ini Archibong, and Bec Brittain. You can watch the full movie here.
