Biography

 

 

 

“In a house as in a city the important things are located in-between the functions. Scale doesn’t change the approach. When you design an architecture from an urbanistic approach you cannot see the building as a single self-standing structure.

My starting idea is to rethink, rebuild, and reorganize the design across all scales creating continuity by breaking the boundaries between architecture and urbanism and between buildings and city. What I call it is: Urbanism for Architecture.”
