He was born in 1990 in Belgium and studied History of Art at the Paris-Sorbonne University (B.A. 2011) and Architecture at the Ecole Speciale d’Architecture in Paris (M.S. 2017). His studio is working on various scales with a constant set of preoccupations with geometry, volume, light and the strong belief that each project should express and reveal the inherent truth of the place it occupies. This approach materialized with the McNeal 020 project completed in 2020 in Southern Arizona, near the border of Mexico. The architecture refers to the vastness of the American desert, its position and geometry revealing specific characteristics of the surrounding landscape. He founded in 2021 with Shaoshu Zhang a new Paris-based practice Objects of Intention.
