Hi there,

when I was associated with Institute Technology of Bandung, I had frequent opportunity to meet and talk with great lecturers, architects, and urban designers that keep their mind with a lot of idea to make a better planning in design field. Their ideas are always pure and near from ideal to implement in reality.

From university to architect profession reality, being architect is a wise choice. I have had great learning phase: motivating the other team member and designing many projects in Abu Dhabi, South East Asia, Japan and China. I found that I thoroughly enjoyed architecture. Both meeting new clients constantly and providing them with design services was immensely rewarding. I have not lost my basic love for education, but I feel strongly that my influence is much greater in my present capacity.
