I graduated at La Cambre Faculty of Architecture in 2017. During my first three years, my focus was mainly on small-scale building in busy urban environments. I got great feedback on projects like a habitat the size of a parking place, an extension of a small family home and a narrow construction on an abandoned plot. During the summer of 2013, I attended the Porto Summer School, where I saw lectures by architects Alvaro Siza Vieira and Eduardo Souto Moura and participated in the studio of Johan Anrys from the Belgian architecture office 51N4E.
After finishing my bachelor's degree with an intense crematorium design and a discovery of Berlin's architecture, I left for an Erasmus year in Madrid, Spain. I attended the Europea University where I gladly took classes by Uriel Fogué Herreros (Elii Arquitectura) and explored my passion for art and theatrical scenery. I finished my year abroad with an internship at PKMN Arquitectos (Now: Enorme Estudio) where I got to experience first-hand how moveable objects are defining current architecture projects.
I finished my studies in Brussels with a church remodelling project, showcasing new uses of abandoned buildings and found my way to the "fab lab" (digital fabrication studio). Finally, I wrote a master thesis on flexible architecture and the influence of Buckminster Fuller. It felt like a true synthesis of my past and future interests and aspirations in architecture.
Straight out of university I landed an internship in the studio of Carlos Arroyo in Madrid, participating in national and international competitions. Currently, I am back in Brussels working at the vibrant office, DDS+. Working here has allowed me to dive deeper into the execution, materials and the construction tender process.
