Design is a serious and long-term commitment. It requires both innovative ideas and comprehensive technology. Therefore, architectural design must integrate the material and spiritual needs of people now and give sufficient respect to the cultural and natural conditions of our time. Exceptional design and successful execution are the core of my work. Architecture should come from the integration of all elements, including the structure that supports it; The surface that covers it; The functions it contains; The impact it has on ecosystems; The relationship it has with urban spaces; The way to access and perceive it; And as a location how it enhances the collective will and mind of society.
