"Architectural craft and beauty, for me, should serve people and the urban ecological environment they inhabit. At best, the architecture I have designed and made has a keen sense of people and their experiences. I am most pleased when an occupant notices the changes in natural light and landscape through a window made for this experience. I make an opening in an exterior corridor to create a moment of pause; a space to witness and connect to the surroundings. A condition not possible in the windowless corridors of most residential towers. In architectural practice, I focus on housing because it is the building we first know. It helps shape our early lives. Before my architectural studies, the experience of children living in multi-residential buildings was an interest of mine. As a result, I am mindful of a young child’s social life and related architectural environment. Children meeting and playing in a courtyard that I have designed for this purpose speaks to my ongoing interest."
