Biography

I am co-founder of the award-winning practice Aberrant Architecture. Aberrant’s projects introduce new and unexpected ways of experiencing everyday life, designing architecture, interiors, public art, exhibitions and installations that build close relationships with the communities in which they operate.

Combining storytelling and research, Aberrant takes a playful approach and has won numerous honours including D&AD Pencil Awards and the Dulux Let’s Colour Award. Aberrant has exhibited the Venice Biennale of Architecture, Gwangju Design Biennale, Sao Paulo Biennial and the Hong Kong & Shenzhen Bi-City Biennale. We were the inaugural guests of honour at the 2018 Toronto Design Offsite Festival. Our work has been collected by the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and the Museum of Art in Rio de Janeiro. In 2015, Aberrant Architecture won a research grant from the Graham Foundation; their subsequent book Wherever You Find People: The Radical Schools of Oscar Niemeyer, Darcy Ribeiro and Leonel Brizola was published by Park Books in 2016.
