• No Land for a Nation

    This project speculates about a contemporary trend when architecture becomes the ground for architecture. This new kind of Urbanism is ideal for micronations, nations that sold all its land and nations that are reclaiming new sea territories. The interior is created through sampling the most important buildings of the 20th century. 2017
  • Perverse Unité

    Perverse Unité is a project about what constitutes a floor plan and a section. The axonometric drawing is not simply a slice of a three-dimensional object (actual or to be built). It's an expression in the graphic space of an idea of a mass with a void. Looking at the history of plans and sections, it's possible to advocate for the autonomy of the axonometric drawing not as a representation tool but as a speculative drawing.

    If in the 20th century the Unité d'Habitation was about social welfare state owned cheap housing and the humanist idea of the city, in the 21st Century it became about neoliberal capitalist investment and the post-humanist global city. 2016

  • Strangely Familiar

    Strangely Familiar is a project in development with Jonathan Sutanto. It consists on a series of pictures of canonical buildings manipulated digitally in such a way that it produces a slight strangeness, making the observer aware of why these projects belongs to the history of the discipline and how reality could be different. It's also part of an on going research on sampling in Architecture.
  • Zero Building

    The Zero Building is a proposal for a place inhabited by all sorts of objects: Capital, data, humans, walls, Art, ideas. It's image is the Mess, a new kind of spatial organisation where neither figures or the ground can be recognized. The production of this architecture is autopoietic, the floor plans and sections are fusions from existing buildings, proposing a new idea of author for architecture, which is architecture itself for the sake of architecture. It's site is in Santa Maddalena, in Italy, but it could be anywhere. Tutor: Peter Trummer, July 2016

  • Moviola

    Consultancy in design a fabrication of the dome structure for the artist Marcio Ambrósio.   Thanks to the cranks that trigger the numerous gears, the audience interacts with the work; changing the thread of history, causing movement and aesthetic transformations, revealing unusual worlds and creatures. It is a personal reinterpretation of these universes focusing on the contemplation of the movement, analog and digital. The work is divided into 2 parts: the Moviola, sort of a “ship”, that allows the audience to navigate into the worlds. The Dome, a semi-dome shaped sculpture that supports the projection and propels the audience into an immersive journey. Turning wheel and cranks, the audience takes care of the "ship" and travels in the worlds, changes the world’s orientation, approaches or follows a creature, causing interference in the animation of the world he is discovering. This is why each history is unique... MOVIOLA makes the audience disconnect from the real world and brings a feeling of peace and tranquility. July,2014
  • The Painterly Museum

    The Painterly Museum is result of one year of intensive research at Städelschule Architecture Class. My interest on this project is to speculate about the possibility of an architecture produced by painterly techniques able to produce painterly effects. My architectural strategy was to reject the linear aspects of building in privilege of the possibility of a Painterly architecture, adopting the dichotomy of linear and painterly developed by Heinrich Wolfflin in Principles of Art History in 1915. His theory is that the linear aspects of painting reinforces the borders between objects at the same time the painterly aspects blurs it. The tentative is to blur the borders of a traditional building, producing fragments like strokes, creating a whole with unstressed borders. To maximize the effects of painterly, corrugation is introduced on all surfaces. It creates different effects in different scales. It’s able to produce a series of in-between spaces, where I can allocate all my programs. At the same time, it produces a poché between inside spaces and the outer building skin. The building skin works structurally better through it’s multi-directional corrugation and redundant overlapping, creating a new kind of structural ornamentation. The spatial effect of this building is closer to the experience of walking in a forest than in the city. In the city, we orient ourselves in a a bigger and abstract way: I need to walk two blocks and turn right to reach my destination and I can walk in a flawless ground. In my proposition, it’s necessary to be constantly aware of the space - if you are not aware of the constantly changing ground or of the structure 30cm from you, you are able to get hurt - the experience is closer to hiking. This new typology that is like nature forces a new way of engagement with space. This project was part of Active Borders exhibition in BraubachFIVE gallery in Frankfurt am Main.

  • Love Project

    Consultancy on generative algorithms for Guto Requena. VIDEO! "Love Stories shaping everyday objects" The LOVE PROJECT is a study in design, science and technology that captures the emotions people feel in relating personal love stories and transforms them into everyday objects. The project suggests a future in which unique products will bear personal histories in ways that encourage long life cycles, thus inherently combining deeply meaningful works with sustainable design. The complexity involved in developing this project was made possible thanks to a multidisciplinary team sharing in a collaborative design process. Ultimately, this LOVE PROJECT has many authors. It seeks to include the end user in the process of creation itself, as participants, thus democratizing and demystifying the use of interactive digital technologies. Participants themselves will investigate cutting-edge possibilities in the digital design industry and its new logic of creation, production, transportation and sales. Sensors applied to participants read their subtle reactions while they tell the defining love story of their own lives. As participants speak, data drawn from their changing emotions is relayed to specially-developed software. Via a graphic interface created in Grasshopper, this data molds every aspect of a design object which is then fabricated using a 3D printer. July, 2015

  • Supple Pavillions

    Interactive pavilion for the 2012 International Festival of Electronic Language (F.I.L.E.). To be located along Avenida Paulista, the aim is to create an interactive and supple design, using recursive scripting, associative modelling, processing and Arduino with digital fabrication. Based on the Strings Pavilion design of the 2011 High-Low workshop, the pavilion will react to light sensors and human activity, so as to transform and create a range of different lighting and spatial effects, triggering further movement of the pavilion and producing an interactive feedback loop of behaviour and response. In collaboration with Rob Stuart-Smith, Anne Save de Beaurecueil, Franklin Lee, Lawrence Friesen, Lucas De Sordi, Thomas Von Gutten, Ernesto Bueno, Helen Sakano, Julio Radesca, Loira, Gilfranco Alves, Flávia Ghirotto, Cynthia Nojimoto and dozens of AA Visiting School Students. From 2011 to 2013.
