In “Arcreatures” there is a strong interest in animals …

Yes, that’s right. “Arcreatures” is a project very dear to me because I like working on architectural drawings with an anthropomorphic look as well as playing with the childish elements that can be found in this kind of approach. Growing up I have always wanted to be an architect and I don’t even know why. Now that I am one, sometimes I wish I could go back in time so as to view the world through child’s eyes. I really enjoy being an architect and the topics and issues we deal with are somewhat very important however I just wish architects would refrain from taking themselves too seriously. For this reason, I often find myself playing with the images to create architectures with an anthropomorphic looks with hidden eyes and faces; I look for architecture in a parallel universe, making up architectural shapes with elements from other themes. I make architectural drawings that look like animals or monsters that exist: if we were to check, you would be able to spot anthropomorphic or zoomorphic elements in every building!
