#BEATinterviewSeries Following the interview series that @beat_to conducted with our advisory committee earlier this year (check BEAToronto.com ) we thought it would be interesting to keep it going and to pose the same questions to attendees of our #SpringCrossPollinationParty. We will be rolling out the reaction of that experiment over the coming months due to the fantastic turn out and enthusiastic participants. Thank you to our brave interviewees and also to our photographer Scott Norsworthy @norsworthyscott #portraitsofpractice #BEAT2016 First up is: Lamia Bensouda - DSAI "How do I strike a balance between life and work?" "I make sure that everything else is just as important as my work. As much as I love what I do I know life is about so much more from family to sports to other passions I have to stay creative and they are all really important to reinforce my profession so I’d say I try to leave work on time as a staple. Early in my career I used to do the long hours. At this stage of my life I think it’s just as important to cut it at some point because there is no end to design work. You can continue designing forever and you’re never going to get the right answer so at some point you just stop and you move onto the other things that you love doing and ya that varies. For me it’s art, music, sports, martial arts. Whatever it is, you know, family." #architecture #torontoarchitecture #womeninarchitecture @thepowerplantto
