About

The Hobotect is… Mirren Fischer, an American (recovering) architect living in London.

I’m no longer a registered architect, and for the past 10 years I’ve been working in digital design, but I miss making physical space, so am constantly thinking about it and trying to do my own projects. In both the physical and digital spheres I’m interested in psychology, structure, and beauty. I imagine that, going forward, our physical and digital environments will be increasingly intertwined — so I like to keep a foot in both worlds. I want to know how to combine ancient and cutting edge technologies to make beautiful spaces that are environmentally and socially sustainable.

I started this blog in 2008, when I was leaving Scotland to travel around India and wanted some way of recording what I was doing and seeing – and communicating to my friends and family that I was still alive. Although the purpose has changed over the years, I’m leaving the old posts as a record…
