Profile

Primary teaching assignment 3rd year design and practice.

Philosophical Statement: Architecture by the definition is an integration of technical skill and artistic imagination. Architecture makes connections across disciplines, laces and specialties, such as structures and mechanical equipment, in the larger context of the built environment which is represented in the classroom by the architectural model. The innovative use of architectural models is the basis for my integration of both solar, structural systems and artistic imagination.
