Bio

The privilege to wander between architectural research and practice, although often perceived as mutually exclusive inclinations, is the driving force of my work. This dual fascination results in architectural projects which are deeply rooted in their social, historical and physical context, and in academic writings which primarily stem from spatial curiosity. My recent work focuses on the evaluation of the agency of architecture in rebuilding Jewish communities in post-World War II Israel and Europe. My ongoing Master’s thesis deals with unearthing spatial and cultural layers of the historic city centre of Frankfurt am Main, Germany, with special attention to the modern urban fabric which was built on the relics of the Judengasse — the centuries-old Jewish ghetto.


Today I am a Master's student at the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment at TU Delft, the Netherlands. In parallel, I am participating as a guest studio critic at the Faculty of Architecture and Town Planning at the Technion, Israel. Outside the academic world, I eagerly pursue opportunities to submit works, both individually and collaboratively, to architectural competitions and design projects.
