I am an architect in the pursuit of research and innovation in collective intelligence and healthcare planning. Currently, I work as an architect at Medical Architecture and a MPhil/PhD Student at the Bartlett School of Architecture, University College London.
As an architect, I have award winning international experience on healthcare, residential, cultural, commercial, retail and mixed use sectors. At Medical Architecture, I am currently working on projects in London, Morocco, Liberia and SW England. In 2015 I relocated from Paris to London, having previously worked for Atelier Michel Remon, Atelier DCCP Architectes, and Sensual City Studio / Jacques Ferrier Architectures. Independently, I coordinated an international team of 11 that won second prize out of 1749 submissions at the 2014 Jacques Rougerie Competition, in partnership with the French Academy and UNESCO. Other previous awards include: second prize for the Romanian Pavilion at the 2014 Venice Architecture Biennale, participation for the Water Plant Culture Centre for Suceava, nominated for the 2013 Mies van der Rohe award.
As a researcher, I am interested in collective intelligence, collaborative design, and healthcare planning. I conducted practice-based research on international competitions and developed a design management methodology called CISP (Collective Intelligence Support Protocol) aimed to stimulate team creativity and boost efficiency. The methodology supported collaborative design for two Mzo Tarr Architects competitions: Flossie and the Fox Prison and Gaming Project Tenderloin. In 2013 I finished the DPEA post master in architectural research with high honours, resulting in a poster, a dissertation and a publication in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science proceedings.
