Barbara talks to Cultured about her growing practice


"As a practice, Bestor Architecture operates with the same openness. “It’s not ideologically driven,” Bestor says. “I don’t think we need a lot of reductivist rules governing what is okay or not okay.” As a result, she doesn’t feel like the member of a club.
