Unlabelled City

tells a story that things should not be subjectively labelled. What the space does is what define the space. Change, is the constant of this city. Unlabelled city emphasize on the juxtaposition of being chaos in an order.

Everyone is working in their pace, in the same place but in different space. An experiment that emphasize on the indifference of people but shares common interest or purpose in life. Being different is common. The modular structure framework and spaces are to adapt and expand as it develops, building conditions for the future.

The Goddess of Rainbow

The Goddess of Rainbow is Ibiza’s new symbolic tower/statue inspired by Ibiza's goddess of the Moon, Tanit, who gifts visitors with spiritual & rejuvenation powers.
