I am interested in Urban Intervention design strategies that seek to solve contemporary issues. Thus, my designs aim to blur the boundaries between urbanism, architecture and landscapes while providing a setting in which to be productive or simply enjoy life.

My ultimate goal is to continue to pursue the exploration of alternative urban infrastructure, architecture and landscape designs that push for healthier living conditions and reduce our consumption footprint.
