“I’ve always been inside this profile which corresponds to my personal attitudes, that is I try to carry our designing as a form of reflection, an evolved form of thought, also as a knowable category. the core of my work is not architecture per se, a discipline per se, I’m interested in architecture and the discipline because of its tight bond with knowledge.”
