confidential project material

Joined D2P in the digital planning team for complex-geometry architecture projects mainly on the UCB HQ by Heatherwick Studio :

  • Research in digital fabrication and installation methods
  • Coordination and 3D assertion of reference models
  • Programming Python scripts to generate wooden structure details
  • Processes and tools documentation

CITRA – Live Different

confidential project material

Crafting innovative design for affordable and high-end markets. Leading the architecture department featuring automated drawing packages. Developing Design-to-Production workflows for automated CNC and assembly manufacturing processes.

Zaha Hadid Architects

confidential project material

Developed complex geometry façade systems of Torre Bora, the tallest residential tower in Mexico City with 60k m² of prime apartments & facilities, and joined an invited competition in Seoul, South Korea.

  • Developed a thorough envelope definition in Rhino + GH to stay flexible with consultants/manufacturers’ requirements and creating a detailed DD package
  • Shortlisted concepts for 2 design alternatives of 195.000 m² prime offices and a 2000-seat concert hall

Laboratory for Explorative Architecture & Design (LEAD)

Participated in the design development and drawing packages of a 1 km-long mixed-use complex building façade design and developed competitions.

Three significant projects:

  • Ningbo K11 Art Mall – Façade systems, balconies, skylights and atria
  • Seoul Creative Play – Mixed-use community center & theatre
  • WKCD Pavilion – Hyper light-weight temporary structure

Kyotec Group – Hong Kong

Joined the international team of the free-form façade’s contractor – Kyotec Group – on Morpheus Hotel Tower, the new premier landmark hotel of City of Dreams in Macau designed by Zaha Hadid Architects.  It taught me a lot about construction know-how, design stages and the importance of fine detailing – and tolerances! Combining these assets made me well-versed in what came next.

In September 2013, I founded – the sharing platform for the best architecture students in Belgium. Six architecture faculties joined the movement with more than 250+ projects from first to last year. This online exhibition hall was the only one of its kind with more than 200k page views from 50k single users over 4 years. I saw it as a booster of creativity in architecture school.

In August 2015, I was asked to join the team of researchers at UCL university to design two online platforms becoming focal tools to the architecture workshops Lab-Istanbul & Youyang-Lab.

The production includes a wide range of critical material from beforeduring and after the visits to Istanbul, Turkey.


Throughout my work, I love to keep records of the construction and model-making process. Enjoy !

about me

Raised in Belgium, with roots in France and Italy, I studied architecture in Brussels and Montreal and learned about architectonics and construction methods, especially with wood.

I then discovered the fascinating world of computational design while researching on my awarded master thesis on ‘Responsive Envelope in Architecture’.

Hungry for more, I moved to Hong Kong to learn from the best. I joined the construction site of Zaha Hadid Architect’s Morpheus Hotel façade systems with Kyotec Group.

Bolstered by this experience, I could further develop complex geometry projects at the Laboratory for Explorative Architecture & Design (LEAD) in Hong Kong and at Zaha Hadid Architects in London, UK.

I then joined CITRA in Cape Town, South Africa to help them scale their green building method with automated Design-to-Production processes that tackle large-scale housing developments.

Following this incredible opportunity, I moved to Zürich where I developed Santiago Calatrava‘s many design iterations for large office buildings, galleries, train stations, and statues projects. Thrilling learning from a genuine geometry genius where computational design is at its best.

A dream for a while, I started at Design-to-Production in Zürich in developing complex geometry 3D details for wood construction — Using top-notch Python libraries to digest large models into the smallest parts, ready for fabrication.

In my spare time, I enjoy discovering wild and remote places, educating people about a greener lifestyle, and kitesurfing.

Today, after 6 years of thrilling experiences, I am eager to join your team as a Computational Architect to create meaningful yet complex experimental living spaces.


Thank you for your consideration.

I am looking forward to connecting with you.
