Design for Cambodia

I decided to be part of the Cambodia studio at Aalto university and thus travel to Cambodia to find a design task with a local NGO. Hollmén Reuter Sandman architects have organized the studio, where we will design public buildings for NGOs’ needs in Cambodia. The field trip takes place in March 2010, and after the trip we will design in Finland with the guidance of our visiting professor Anna Heringer.

Returning to Helsinki and Aalto University

Spring semester 2009 at Studio Kollhoff

After getting fundamental training in architectural research in autumn 2008 at Studio Herzog & de Meuron, I decided to apply for a very different studio for the spring. I was accepted at Studio Kollhoff, led by prof. Hans Kollhoff, which is known for very precise post-modern design and huge loads of work. I am looking forward to the design task; a church of St. Peter in Berlin.

Autumn semester 2008 at Studio Basel / prof. Herzog & de Meuron

I will start my studies at ETH Zürich with a research studio at Studio Basel with professors Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron. The studio is based on a field trip to Kolkata, India. Me and Annabel Cremer from Germany have decided to research water in the city; the effects of water flows and waterbodies on the city structure. The book “Bodies of water” will be out in December 2008.
