Michael Godden graduated from the Glasgow School of Art and has practiced architecture in Zurich and 

Reykjavik for a number of years. His work is fundamentally interested in the body’s relationship to form and

space, playing with an intimacy that conventional architecture struggles to provide. This work takes form in

different realities: visual art, theatre and architecture being the main ones.
