About 

LEED Green Associate

Well-rounded architect with attention to detail, specialization in historic preservation, solid knowledge in building science, and commitment to sustainability.

 

I have found pleasure by looking at a conflict between the past and the present. There have always been material or immaterial issues within the architecture. I believe that there could be an innovative dialogue between old and new which would make them compatible in every detail.
