Tinker Hatfield: Pompidou Centre and Nike Air Max

Tinker Hatfield is an architect who started working at Nike designing showrooms, and ended up being VP of design. He was behind the design of the now classic Air Max shoes. On this short interview he tells how the Pompidou Centre by Renzo Piano influencied his shoe design, in terms of exposed systems and color.

I always enjoy this stories on how architects end up working on other fields, but still influenced by architecture.
