  Throughout my student experience I developed a passion for architecture to the point that it became more than a career, it became my lifestyle. Enriched by the knowledge obtained by every project I taken, I came to realize that as Designer we have the power to influence human kind in the way they think and feel. I believe our opportunities are limitless and our impact in society is profound. Furthermore our obligation goes beyond a structural sound building; it becomes about creating  adequate spaces for specific users with the goal of providing a rich experience in which subliminal thoughts are promoted.  At the end we aim to extract “the most out of the least” through intelligent and clever thinking.

Density : Finding solution for a massive problem.

Rapid world growth and urbanization is not allowing cities to adapt and provide for their inhabitants. Towns are quickly growing into cities, and some of the densest places in the world are comprised of makeshift homes, otherwise referred to as slums. Furthermore, already overcrowded cities have to absorb people leaving their rural hometown in hope of job opportunities. There are currently over 1 billion slum dwellers in the world. This number is expected to reach 2 billion by the year 2030.
