Tell us something about your country:
We love cheese and wine and diplomas. France is the world’s most popular tourist destination – some 83.7 million visitors arrived in France, according to the World Tourism Organization report published in 2014, making it the world’s most-visited country.
Who is your favorite architect and why?
As for now, I would choose Ross Langdon. I love his use of materials, especially in his works in west Africa, and globally his approach to the problems surrounding and within his buildings.
Why did you decided to come to Prague
I was seeking a different experience from the Western Europe I am used to, in history and culture. The wide collection of construction styles within the city and how easy it is to travel from Prague were also a defining factor.
Favorite place in Prague:
Still in the finding, but definitely the parks like Letna.
What is your ideal approach as a future architect?
Too hard to answer, still trying to figure out how basics work. Give me a couple more months
Besides school, do you have another passion?
To draw a lot, ride horses and play piano. These are my other passions.
