The Architecture of Contemplation

Welcome, friends and fellow human beings.

Welcome to The Architecture of Contemplation podcast, where I sit down with fellow humans, and ask, what are the places, the spaces, that they go to for rest, respite and contemplation?

hardeep per se talk with h_edited.jpg

Hello. I'm Hardeep

Co-founder of design + consulting studio per se, I spend time contemplating ways to cook the perfect madeleine, uncovering means to access the fundamental nature of reality, and making products that help people connect deeper to their essential selves, should they possess just such a desire.

When not thinking, writing, and designing, I enjoy travelling on foot and apologising profusely to inanimate objects, into which I occasionally bump.

I hope you enjoy this endeavour, I thoroughly enjoy creating it.




As a fellow Architect, receive: 
- A note when a conversation is ready

- Extra audio (for an introvert, I seem particularly enamoured by the sound of my own voice...)
- Reading lists, transcripts, additional edifying paraphernalia
- News of podcast related events
- Select missives, pertaining to these conversations
- Etc (I bet this is the category that gets you to join)
