save modern architecture
If I tell my life, it will be boring, so I prefer talking about my project. this summer, I am visiting the US to make a research and meet as many people as possible in order to find what can be done to preserve modern buildings I like very much. But it still sounds boring, so let's say I also want to meet many people who will tell me everything about their life, their city and their house! travelling without knowing how people live and think has no interest for me. I am easy going, I always see the good side of everything, and I am always smily.
In India, I learned the "secret": positive thoughts (and time isn't money, time is richness and sharing). I also think humans need nature : I love everything that is living, people, forests, plants and animals
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I participate in building the community by sharing my knowledge about the place where I live and the places I have been to.
Russia, Moscow, May 2009 at Nastya and Anton's. It was a fantastic experience and wonderful people. I discovered the russian everyday life and the city, from the "inside"
Poland, Warsaw, May 2008 at Magda and Prezmek's, a lot of fun and interesting discovery of the city
I am basically interested in everything, apart from business, law and finance. I love arts, history, technology and travelling. I am fond of architecture of course, but also painting, music, cinema, litterature, good food and wines...
- art history
Music, Movies, and Books
It must be a professionnal distortion, but I love the cinema that deals with moving into space and cities: Antonioni, Kurosawa, Gitai, Tarkovski, and many others (I also like the hollywood movies). I love French litterature, but read one or two interesting Philip Roth books. i also like classical music (from Bach to Wagner) and pop and rock music (from Beck to Vampire Weekend)
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I am visiting all the buildings made by Le Corbusier all around the world. 4 are still missing
Teach, Learn, Share
I Can teach a lot about architecture, art history, drawing. I know how to repair a WC flush and little things in the house. I can provide advise on works, furniture arrangement and construction.
i would like to learn better English, both spoken and written. i want to know how people live (if they can take time to tell me...)
