His thesis focuses on the comparison of architectural models at the origin of collective housing experiments carried out in Vienna and Frankfurt in the interwar period. He is the author of the book “L’intelligence des formes”, published by MetisPresses in 2019. In 2020, he was a visiting researcher at Emory University in Atlanta, United States. His research interests focus on the typo-morphological aspects of housing and their capacity to build collective forms.
