I am a Maltese architect who obtained his bachelors degree in Architecture and Civil Engineering in 2010 from the University of Malta and then undertook research at The Bartlett (UCL) graduating with distinction from RC2 Graduate Architectural Design.
Following my degree I participated in the international architectural restoration summer school at the University of Rome ‘Tor Vergata’ and started working at Paul Camilleri And Associates soon after until 2012 where I obtained my professional warrant. Involved in various major design and architectural work for the same practice, I formed part of a team working on Smart City Malta project.
Light as a performative tool to form architecture - My Masters research is an architectural philosophy situated in the argument between the analysis of light caustics and the rules of optics. In my research I propose a desire to challenge the use of technologies available in the architectural field, to overcome any historical limitations and conceive an all-round tool of form, function and experience.
As part of my Masters research I collaborated with Waterloo University in Canada where I exhibited my installation, entitled Caustic ICE_Surfaces, part of the Archiglace exhibition at the MUSÉE NATIONAL DES BEAUX-ARTS DU QUÉBEC (MNBAQ) in February 2013 and my work has been published widely on various online architecture and design portals.
