My work interests follow two different lines, often intersect,
The first is a research line focused in social areas, looking for new systems of relating and grouping. My work focuses on the understanding of public spaces as a frame of creation for new social interactions. Inside this line I create a fusion of purely architectural projects with a highlighted sculptural/artistic aspect, endeavoring to benefit the resulting project with both fields.
The second line of work is based in the production of ideas, concepts and models in a purposeful limitless context, looking for new challenges, new programs and new solutions that meet the demands of our society.
The combination of these two lines generates a huge range of different paths: understanding research as a target, and challenging creativity as the modus operandi to follow. The results are focused on a social aspect with the public space as a core of the action, not just as an observer, and architecture as a tool to humanize the city.
