The firm has been pushing sustainable buildings and cities with focus on combining art with green technology. His projects have been exhibited in 37 cities. His emerging firm has competed against OMA in 2016 for a city plan the size of Manhattan. He founded a volunteering organization to teach architecture on a weekly basis and has taught over 3,000 children about sustainable design and architecture. He believes our future will be brighter if children are more equipped with creative and sustainable thinking.
