The privilege to wander between architectural research and design thinking, although often perceived as mutually exclusive inclinations, is the driving force of my work. My abilities to observe human habitats through both historical and formal lenses, to read spaces by means of theory and material, and to formulate new places via words and drawings - developed and expanded along with my academic and professional experience, and have consistently become more evident in my work. This dual fascination results in architectural projects which are deeply rooted in their cultural, historic and physical context, and in academic writings which primarily stem from spatial curiosity.

Both as a designer and as a researcher, my fascination lies in ordinary urban environments. Seeking value in often overlooked places is not a mere whim, but a didactic choice resulting from a disciplinary obligation to minimise the environmental impact of built projects, as well as a deep belief in the role of architecture in everyday life.
