I believe in architecture that contributes to the production of perceptible environments, by being relentlessly attentive to disciplines that free interior spaces from conventions of use and allow the interior to become an architectural material.

My M.Arch thesis, which considered home-sharing platforms to be an unstable combination of objects and stuff, addressed questions of transformation, accumulation, and aggregation.
