Elsa Lam is an editor’s dream of a writer – an excellent researcher with an eye for detail, an effective communicator with a concise yet fluid style and a generous collaborator willing to go above and beyond.
Elizabeth Pagliacolo, Senior Editor, Azure Magazine

I have enjoyed working with Elsa over a number of years. Working collaboratively is essential to running a successful magazine. Elsa is one of our most trusted writers. This is largely due to her rigorous research methodology, ability to translate complex ideas to a broad readership, and most importantly–her professionalism. I have learned a lot through my collaborations with Elsa, and I always appreciate her insight and energy.

Ecrire l’architecture est une tache doublement complexe. Elle implique de se mettre dans la peau de l’auteur d’un projet pour remonter à l’origine des idées qui ont donnée forme à son bâtiment et de se mettre dans la peau de l’usager, qui habite ces lieux sans forcement comprendre pourquoi ce même bâtiment l’interpelle. Avec ses mots, Elsa Lam nous présente l’architecture d’une façon à la fois claire et imagée. Ses écrits combinent la liberté d’un flâneur qui découvre un espace nouveau et la précision d’un archéologue qui cherche, dans ce même espace, à reconstituer la genèse de sa conception.
