How would you describe your work style? Do you have any kind of “signatures” that may help to identify your projects?

I’d call it – functional eclecticism. I like to mix materials and textures , but at the same time, I never choose the beauty instead of functionality. Because on of the main architect purpose is to create convenient and comfortable space for life. And nowadays architects doing for the sake of creation, forgetting that they work for the human beings.

If I was lucky to choose any project, I would have worked with the building of the Museum of Modern Art or some kind of cultural center. Also, I’d like to design and develop social objects.
