Welcome to my Blog

My name is Damian Donze, I was working (2011-2014) as an Architect for the Tongji Architectural Design Institute in Shanghai, China.  I am writing this blog to make my views about architecture public and to have a platform to present my work.

As of February 2015, I have my own office (DVDarchitecture) in Switzerland. We focus on Architectural Renderings, Animation and Design.
