About 

After earning my Dipl. Ing. Arch. degree at Budapest University of Technology and Economics, I  became a licensed architect in Hungary in 2000, before founding my own design firm. After a diligent 5 years of running my own design office, I came to the US as a Fulbright scholar and received a Master of Architecture degree at Pratt Institute, Brooklyn NY. 

I have an international experience in several different countries, with diverse cultural and architectural background and with different construction and building types. As a lead designer I have completed major projects all over the world, recent years include New York, NY in the United States and London in the United Kingdom.

My work in London received the Scala Most Innovative Project award. I was also awarded by the Hungarian-American Enterprise Scholarship Fund (HAESF) and by the Hungarian Ministry of Cultural Heritage. I have developed a series of workshops for students called FAB-RIC by merging the latest computational architectural theory and technics with manual model making. 

In addition, I earned a Bachelor of Science degree at Semmelweis University, Faculty of Physical Education and Sport Sciences and I was a professional basketball player and a basketball coach in Hungary.
