Career Ambitions

To do away with typological expression, to form the first non-post-modern movement in design, to simultaneously respect and envy the basic sciences while at work, to establish a practice before the age of 30, to promote experimental thought, to build.

Why MIT?

For the right to be different, for the liberty of thought and expression, for the lack of adequate, for the wealth of knowledge, for an awesome turn-of-the-century wind-tunnel, for the T-shirts, for Barker Library, for the mission to advance knowledge, for the great legacy of William Barton Rogers and the first computer, for the infinite corridor and the long walks, for innovation and free food, for an elegance of demeanor, for the Charles and the sailing club, for singing the love of risk, for its rare collection of thinkers and makers, for its intellectual affluence, for its legacy and for its looks.


‘Beauty exists only in struggle. There is no masterpiece that has not an aggressive character. Poetry must be a violent assault on the forces of the unknown, to force them to bow before man.’ (The Fututrist Manifesto, F. T. Marinetti, 1909)
