Personal profile

Curriculum vitae

My interdisciplinary approach draws from experiences as a practicing architect, predominantly dealing with housing, from artistic enquiry into the domestic sphere and from my interest in ethnographic methodology. These define approaches and tactics in my main fields of interest - dwelling, inhabitation and questions of the home; buildings as processes, diachronic perspectives onto the built environment; the project typologies of conversion, extension and renovation; a close range of observation, registration and intervention.
