CONSULTANT
DESIGN BY CLIMATE fr/en



About


Being a self-entrepreneur, I offer my services as a consultant in public or private development projects oriented towards a climate adaptation process, guided by appropriate and sustainable technical choices.

I have a multidisciplinary background that allows me to cross architecture and design with the history and philosophy of technology. I believe that some fundamental design problems begin with the appearance of the first man-made objects. This is why I attach great importance to disciplines such as the history of technology and anthropology, which allow me to understand and anticipate the evolution of mentalities and practices over time.
