DESCRIPTION:  I have developed a personal interest in harnessing the power of chemistry and utilizing it directly in architecture. Not strictly through material science but through the direct application of chemistry in the way buildings function.

MAIN STRATEGY: These materials respond to light and are susceptible to change reversibly, expressing changes in their visual transmission, reflection and absorption. Their transparency and coloration also vary dynamically as a response to different stimuli. Colors, hues, iridescences, contours, gradients, ephemeral qualities and transitional stages engender a palimpsest exploring a metamorphic perception and management of form and space.
