Good Architecture means the architecture that wants to use materials for the purpose of creating buildings that are “in conversation” with its environment. I like to have a vision of a building of the future. It is besides its existence as a shelter, should be also productive – solar/wind & other energy, water collecting, repair its own “skin”, reuse of all materials in the building etc. But we’re not only guessing about conditions decades or centuries away, in our architectural practice we’re looking at the possibilities that exist now

Architecture is a natural choice for me. It will enable me to combine the strongest aspects of my personality, as I love the thrill of solving problems in everyday life, a fascination with functional art and design, particularly arrangements of function and space. Le Corbusier was right – “…house is a machine for living”… My goal is to make this machine intelligent.
