“As an architect I am fascinated by the interaction between public space and architecture. Designing architecture that matters because it interacts with not only the context, but with people. Facilitating encounters and connections. Creating solutions together with clients that synergize with the opportunities of the surroundings. Creating designs together with the stakeholders, striving for resilience, social relevant urban plans and architecture.”
