Welcome to my architecture portfolio!

 

Here I have published a selection of projects developed within a few years of practice. Some I produced independently, others are part of my professional activity within several architecture firms. Overall it is not a cohesive set of works since they relate to different contexts and gather influences from various foreign places. My involvement in architecture competitions is motivated by an interest towards site and program study. It is a way of using my latest research findings to express new ideas.

Recently, designing for construction has been occupying more of my time due to ongoing projects in which I take part.
