“A year at Domus feels like a few days. There is so much happening on each floor, it’s hard to put your finger on things. So, I didn’t. I enjoyed the ride and walked out with a new perspective on design. There is so much to soak in; we had challenging workshops and excellent mentors and classmates from all around the world. This is the perfect breeding ground for innovators who want to harness the power of design (in the bigger sense).”
