About 

Welcome to my creative portfolio. The projects try to understand current design notions, and re-image old design paradigms. The method of design operation for these projects include: parametricism, digital visualization, and current notions of rapid fabrication. Also, the projects try to re-image architecture and its method of form finding, by pushing the notions of the ordinary and investing the characteristics on the extraordinary.
