About me

Architecture has been my passion for nearly all of my life. Both my parents wanted to originally study architecture but didn’t, and therefore I feel it only right to carry out their dream as well as my own.

I started working at the age of 16 in an architecture practice as an apprentice and have still remained at the same practice at the present age of 24.

Other than architecture, I spent most of my time training at the gym or going on long walks out in the countryside. I love to take photographs (which can be seen on my Instagram page) and to travel to different places for this.

My dream would be to travel for work, which would allow me to experience different cultures and view the different styles of architecture around the world.

The Memory Archive of Rotterdam aims to attract residents of Rotterdam in the collection and preservation of memories for future experiences. Analysis of the city from a macro to micro scale exposes a series of traces, from superimposition, which translate as individual forms of architectural interventions. At a city scale, the interventions collate to form a focal piece of architecture to represent the overall trace of Rotterdam; and as a result, the trace refers to memory. The project collates a series of speculative navigational drawings to arrive at a piece of architecture which encapsulates the trace and memory of Rotterdam.
