A house in the Highlands
The house is for an artist as a place to retreat from the world. The concept of the house is to experiment how nature spontaneous forces can shape in a boreal region of the world
Wild landscapes and fields of forces
The Scottish Highlands are geological formations where nature can be seen at its bare form: Wind, light and rocks. The house will be the pure expression of the intersections and layering of these elements, and still offer the ever changing vistas onto nature.
The deep layering is expressed in the roof shape itself: a weave -within a weave- within a weave.
The view of the house for hillside walkers will be a moving event daytime or night-time when the house should be seen as an 'extra-ordinary' organism shaped by nature forces.
A perfect mathematic structure..
The variety of forms in nature seems endless. Patterns can derive from mathematical rules. Patterns can derive from mathematical rules. Habitats can derive from patterns.
...transformed by a cahotic process
The pavilion is a temporary proposal for a historic hall. It reflects new built orders and hidden rules in contrast with those of its classical backdrop.
A genetic algorithm is no guarantee of beauty but the outcomes can be striking. The matrix of self assembling timber cubes expresses the invisible forces of life and death that affect each brick.
The City of Cres in Croatia in association with the European Union is developping a new access to the sea from its main seafront promenade. The main purpose is to allow disabled people a safe way down to the water.
The pier is composed of two main elements: the carved stone ramps & a timber deck. The stone ramps slowly grade down to provide a smooth experience to all people and redefine the bay in 3 areas. Shallow-water bathing, Sunbedding and Rental Boats access.

Temporary Art Installation
Death of an era taken-over by 'mechanic systems'. Folded flat metal sheets (otherwise known as flat quads) with an order imposed from without. The source of the structure apparent activity is not the whole itself but its meticulously folded parts.
