Research Interests: Tectonic representation: drawing what you make, making what you draw; craft in digital/analogue fabrication; technology in practice; human form as generator, observer, performer

Design and Teaching Philosophies: The importance of the link between representational techniques and tectonic assemblies cannot be understated. This notion drives the development of ideas and projects by blurring the boundaries between representational and the tectonic understanding of architecture. This blurring occurs through reimagining and renegotiating the programmatic, social, and economic conditions in architecture through a deep engagement with exploring the role of craft and technology in practice.
