“The collected work of Ar Rafiq Azam and by extension Shatotto Architects demonstrates a wonderful affinity with, and understanding of, their contexts The Architect has developed an exceptional body of work that exhibits environmental sensibility, socio-cultural consciousness, artistic flair, material and technical mastery, with generous elements of experimentation. He is also prolific in promotion of architecture through publications, solo exhibitions and visiting lecture ship. Ar Rafiq Azam pairs strong geometry and an often-singular material palette with verdant and abundant landscapes to create a heightened sense – a tension between hard and soft and static and shifting. The outcome of which is very striking. Upon first inspection Ar Rafiq Azam’s spatial compositions appear simple yet further examination reveals complex, carefully crafted and exceptionally executed works of architecture.”
