PHILOSOPY. His work of architecture and design born from the fascination for the appearing semplicity and complexities of the nature and the life, in their evolution in micro and the macrocosmos, and from an innate curiosity for the science and the human thought in all its manifestations, from the theory of the chaos to the spirituality, that he sees as inseparable expressions of an unique natural system in evolution. His formal search is continuously mediated from the will to be contaminated from the most intimate and deep spirit of the nature and the matter, that he recognizes like the most evolute "shapes" of the spirituality and technology.
