About me

I was born in France close to Geneva. After graduating in architecture at the University of Stuttgart I went on to complete the international cooperation: sustainable emergency architecture master at UIC Barcelona.


In the last few years, I have had the opportunity to work in the private sector, development and in emergency as a shelter and settlement consultant. While working in Bangladesh during the Rohingya emergency response in 2018, I saw the opportunities of participatory planning processes in emergency responses and the huge role of Information, Education and Communication (IEC) materials. 

The use of natural materials for shelter and infrastructure is critical to me both to reduce the ecological footprint of construction and to improve the living environment. 


Combining these needs and opportunities as well as my knowledge led me to create the Human Atelier, to collaborate in creating sustainable projects upholding the dignity of each individual and to support and advocate for resilient and self-sufficient communities.
