Favourite design element in India:
"Its best kept secret is in the ancient artisanal techniques that are fast disappearing all over the world. Techniques involving stonework, metal work, mirror work and hand-knotted carpets on massive looms. A lot of people are jumping onto the ultra-modern bandwagon in India, and they're not creating beautiful buildings both inside and outside using the above techniques."
Favourite piece of artwork from Hotel Vagabond:
"The Marco Brambilla piece in the elevator, titled 'Evolution'."
Favourite art capital in the world:
"It's a tough one. I like New York City and The Metropolitan Museum of Art — the scale and diversity of everything that they exhibit."
Favourite music album:
"Bob Marley's Legend. I spent my formative years listening to it. There's something in it that is quite captivating. I obviously like reggae and island music."
Favourite building in Singapore:
"The National Gallery. I like the way they've integrated the modern into the heritage."
