Inside the architectural space that is constantly changing with movement, accompanied by a complex musical rhythm, surrounded by illusions, the viewer becomes a part of the virtual environment.

The main focus of his work is the exploration new ways of architectural communications tools through immersive video. He tries to use a number of cinematic methods of incorporating the temporal dimension into the architectural presentation. Dividing the visual experience into spaces, movements and action, and then reorganizing them in a sequence, which in turn generate different stories.
