Places inhabit us as much as we inhabit them. I am interested in how architecture embodies physical and mental structures, and in how those structures bleed into our personal and social identity.

The spaces in which we live are testament to a never ending cycle of construction and destruction. An epoch and its political system materially embed themselves in the built environment. As one period gives way to another, layer upon living layer of architecture and history accumulate.

My practice predominately focuses on sites that have been shaken by these changing realities. I explore places with an unstable identity, their subsidence and displacements, their indeterminate ambiguous skins. I aim to construct liminal spaces – hybrids – that are an architecture of space and memory.
