Cross-disciplinary designer. Guided by a generalist curiosity, much enthusiasm, and the desire to foster ideas that create a fairer world. I enjoy dreaming big, finding new and interesting opportunities, along with exploring the far corners of the world.
I suffer from a severe sleeping disorder known as Narcolepsy and may fall asleep at random moments. When reciting your ideas, dreams or thoughts of the day, kindly wake me up before continuing if I miss out...I would love to hear what you have to say.
Design, Digital Fabrication, A safe world for a global population.
Large numbers migrated to informal cities throughout the 20th century, ushering a new age of the world’s largest urban sprawls, a phenomenal growth with severe environmental consequences. Informal dwellers are unable to build homes more than three floors, spreading city boundaries more than 20km in every direction, an unmanageable growth.
8,000 years, the brick has had six sides. Opportunity exists to upgrade the brick with as many sides as a material can tolerate. Mud is cheap, abundant, recyclable, everlasting and thermally suitable for comfort. 3D printing is a zero-waste addictive process that will allow us to produce new forms that are cheaper, stronger, lighter and more intelligent than previous construction. The informal city will rise safe against disaster
The disruption is not the change for one billion in cities like London and New York, but the introduction of architecture, engineering and urban design to five billion people that have never had it before.
Anything, bring back the renaissance thinkers!
