Architectural Design Philosophy

I am fascinated by how Architecture is a synthesis of the subjective and objective. It requires an elegant balance between the artist’s touch and the mathematician’s mind. Harmony between form and function is vital. Its objective nature is what makes it work, while its subjective nature is why it is remembered. I am interested in people and how they relate and react to the built environment. This threshold between people and the built environment, to me, is Architecture.

Due to the confidential nature of some work, I am unable to share all work on here.
