After studying architecture for a long time I developed a great appreciation of academic field for stimulating investigation of provocative ideas, daring concepts and challenging the entire notion of what architecture is. With each project I explored something different every time, learned new digital tools and analog techniques, turned abstract theories into conceptual designs, challenged vision of future architecture and pushed myself to the limit. Always searching for more I enhanced my architectural knowledge collaborating with departments of engineering, computer graphics and human ecology which gave me a limitless perspective of how much more is still out there to be invented.

Within professional field of architecture I specialize in photorealistic visualization, training in architectural software, 3D and BIM modeling with emphasis on conceptual modeling and adaptive parametric components. Having practiced in Ukraine, United States and China I worked on single and multi-family housing, retail planning, corporate and higher education architecture participating in schematic design and design development, drafting, modeling, visualization and a lot of other tasks. All projects I worked on taught me to appreciate difficult tasks because every challenge has a solution and there is a great satisfaction in finding a smart and elegant one.

While most of the time I’m absorbed by academia and professional work, I still like to find time for design competitions, studying new architectural tools and sharing it through tutorials. Occasional free time is also spent on photography endeavors which help in taking a step back to appreciate beauty of existing things, develop a critical eye for light, color, form, composition and other natural aspects which also enhance my architectural visualization skills. I enjoy all things related to architecture, design and everything that is visual and experiential so my idea of taking a break is switching from one creative project to the next one maintaining constant intake of information and generation of ideas.
