I'm an architect with creative and technical skills in architecture and new media. My design work focuses on computation, collective intelligence, modes of organization and control - explored through architectural design, theoretical writing and audiovisual experiences.

I've developed over the years interests towards the architectural and social impacts of technological innovations in the built environment. Through personal and professional practice, ranging from critical design and prospective thinking to audiovisual experimentations, I seek to explore how digital technologies question the design, representation and perception of space ; how they are inscribed in existing social, political and cultural structures ; and how they redefine power relationships in space, as well as our relationship to materiality and nature. Particularly, I try to investigate models and organizations based on collective intelligence and collaboration, and if/how digital tools and cultures can empower them.

Based in Paris, I’m currently open for jobs and commissions in architectural design, music production, 3D art, graphic design - get in touch by email or through social medias if you are interested
