Biographical notes
1981. I have been trained as an architect but people today basically ask me to help them in coping with their role in the public realm. They can be administrations, companies, NGOs, private citizens. Sometimes architecture&co can be ways for coping.
I am co-founder of snark space making. Arguing that the public is much more a product of the constant negotiating between subjects, places and authorities rather than a premise, Snark deals with the analysis and stimulation of this production in many ways. Snark is an interdisciplinary open network involving architects, urban planners, geographers, semiologists, economists and journalists. Snark acts in the private and public sector, on both a S and XL scale.
My research interests deal with the role of collaborative practices in innovating design processes. I have been researching as well on painful heritage, strategies for the reactivation of abandoned buildings, the change in the role of design practices in contemporarity.
What I do like at most is to collaborate.
