About 

I graduated at the Catholic university of Leuven as an engineer architect. I grew up in Belgium, but moved to Switzerland to work for the firm Herzog & de Meuron. I chose to be an architect because I believe that Architecture has an important social component as we are able to create relationship between people and space. I think that nowadays architecture is mainly driven by financial tendencies that don’t built for the people that actually live there, let stand building for the quality of the urban tissue. That is why my live goal is to create architecture that serves a future common heritage, that could be timeless and accepted by many generations to come.
