About
I am involved in the intersecting positions between architecture, art, research and technology. Originally trained as both building architect and urban planner the scope is simultaniously on the panorama and the detail. A particular focus has been on the infraordinary as a catalyst of everyday socio-spatial coexistence between inhabitants of the city - and explore critical spatial practices to unlock the spatial potential of what is worn half-invisible by daily use.
