Design is about an idea. Itâ€™s finding the immaterial within the material. My work is a process that explores the intangible ideas and emotions that lie within tangible media. Architecture is a manifestation of intensified value within three dimensional space; it should move and inspire, evoke emotion and question limits. I make a point to manifest these ideas where beauty and funcionality meet to produce spaces and objects with intimate detail and panoramic sensibility. A building may inexorably crumble to the ground, and architects may come and go; but good design is timeless. It is so, because an idea can never die.
