I am an architect from the Republic of Moldova. Currently I am practicing as a Project Leader at Sou Fujimoto Architects in Tokyo. I pursued architecture at the Illinois Institute of Technology and graduated Cum Laude in 2013 following which I continued my spatial explorations with a Master of Architecture with Distinction from the Harvard University Graduate School of Design in 2015. After graduation I worked at the offices of Christian Kerez in Berlin, Ensamble Studio in Madrid and Krueck+Sexton Architects in Chicago. While practicing in Chicago I taught in parallel a Design Course to first year architecture students for two semesters as an Adjunct Professor at the Illinois Institute of Technology. Currently I am pursuing naive and rigorous design expressions at all scales through Small Office: an architectural initiative founded with Marshall Ford and ka-sa: a product design studio, founded with Yuki Takeshima. I enjoy all things built, made and drawn focused on creating emotions. These range from architectural designs, products, drawings, objects experiences etc. For a more thorough body of work please visit my online portfolio.
