I am an architect and urban planner from Hungary, but currently living and working in Shanghai, China. I have Master's degree of Urban Planning from the University of Granada. During my bachelor I was granted with Erasmus scholarship for a semester to study Constructing Architecture at the VIA University, Horsens, Denmark.
While working and studying in 4 fundamentally different countries, I gained a series of new perspectives in architectural design, technology and methodology. I have worked on a variety of commercial, urban design, retail-office-hotel mixed-use development, renovation and residential design projects.
I have always been passionate about travelling and understanding different cultures which brought me to China in 2013. During my travels I don't just observe with the eyes of a tourist but as an architect too. Photography is my other passion. Taking photos of buildings, people and nature fascinates me.
Also I like to go on seminars and conferences and visit exhibitions. I was lucky to see and listen to the speech of Tadao Ando, Sou Fujimoto, Daniel Liebeskind and Eva Franch, the curator of New York based gallery, Shopfront for Art and Architecture.
