Publications and citations

Below is a list of citations to articles and academic papers that have been published about projects that I have worked on. Also, there are the references to research that I have carried out. Practice and research in the field of Architecture is often the result of fruitful collaborations with collegues, this is reflected in the authorship of these publications.
