About the Presenter

An architect by training, Arnaud Marthouret is a culture, communications and media pioneer for the architecture and design industry. He was born in Grenoble, France, where he lived until his early twenties. Growing up surrounded by grandiose mountains in the Northern French Alps, he developed an idiosyncratic love for nature, which nurtured his early creative and adventurous spirit. These are character traits that he still cherishes and nurture to this day, as they allow him to see things from a different perspective. He has an unending love affair for two-wheelers, particularly motorbikes. The overwhelming feeling of freedom that one experiences riding, provides an ideal form of focused escape from this over-connected life.
