How did I started? I have graduated in 2011 with a master degree in Advanced Studies in Architecture, with the thesis on the theme of building rehabilitation. What have I been doing? During the following 3 years I have worked on international offices in Portugal (studio Ressano Garcia Architects, in Lisbon), France (WONK architectes, in Lille) and Japan (Sou Fujimoto Architects, in Tokyo). Did I got any award? In 2008, I won my first award, with the 4th place in a students competition. Later in 2011 with the 3rd prize on the contest “Archinews Stand Concept - Tektónica”, in 2013 with the 2nd prize on the ideas contest “Desafios Urbanos ‘12”, and in 2014 the 1st prize in a competition to produce the cover of five editions of the magazine from the Portuguese Architects Organization. Any work exposed? I first saw my work exposed in 2010, at the university with a proposal of urban design. In the same year, I participated in the “Universities Competition - Cova da Moura” organized by the Lisbon Architecture Triennale 2010 where my work was one of the top 30 selected projects, later exhibited in Lisbon. And what am I up to now? Currently I am working at the office NOZ Arquitectura and developing a PhD on the area of Digital Architecture, one of my research interests. I am also a speaker at various conferences, freelance whriter for Wall Street International Magazine on the theme of Architecture and author of the blog “Arquitecta Irrequieta”. Is there anything left to say? I have also gained experience Teaching Architecture in China along with other amazing adventures. Take a look at my cv and portfolio. And if you have any question, contact me.

2010 cova da moura urban design

competition | top 30 exposed at the electricity museum

now the gardens are next to the road

new buildings with rooftop gardens

in collaboration with: bruno salgueiro | joĂŁo carvalho

transposition of gardens to the rooftops of the buildings to rebuild

connections between gardens

accesses


The main strategy consists on enrich the neighborhood with new livelihoods for the locals. The intervention is phased: First we analyze the buildings in bad condition and / or in risk of collapse. Second we apply the necessary measures to recover these buildings. And third, we install the new urban gardens on the rooftops, creating a grid on top of the existing buildings. Here the gardens have conditions to grow and develop in order to expand to more rooftops inside and outside the neighborhood.

assembling of light structure

assembling posterior wall (modules 1m x 1m)

in collaboration with: bruno salgueiro | joana melo | joĂŁo carvalho

assembling the sidewalls

assembling the front walls and all the equipment inside


As a starting point there was two main concerns: the ecological component and the formal configuration. By reusing cardboard tubes, we model the space along a smooth and continuous skin. The skin is structure, crossing the space and involving the stand, and simultaneously interacts with the visitors on a visual level. We attempted to insert a more conceptual and visual component, that would promote the relationship exterior / interior through a membrane-skin-structure which unifies the space.

soap bubble

metaball

glass facade

metal structure

wood interior

in collaboration with gonรงalo silva


We ​​considered the soap bubble the materialization of the magical colors from an aurora borealis, through its reflection on the surface of the building. The construction of the bubble is based on the metaball logic inspired by geodesic structures of Buckminster Fuller and Otto Frey. The building configuration allowed us to connect it with the surrounding nature, without being invasive. Inspired by the wooden houses of the north, the internal structures were created following a minimization process.

2013 desafios urbanos museum

competition | 2nd place

re.generate

in collaboration with gonรงalo silva

re.use

re.connect


This project is a mutation of the existing building. Some elements were removed, others remained, strengthening the link between past and future. As a result, we have two independent buildings. The first building covers an area of studios for artistic production, creating a dichotomy between the museum that tells the industrial processes and the studios where they face new methods. The second building is an open space to receive multiple functions, such as performances and other leisure activities.

brain activity

while collaborating at the office ressano garcia arquitectos

electromagnetic connections


A prison is a place for rehabilitation and cerebral transformation. When located on the ocean, it does not need conventional walls, prisoners are kept arrested by the water around it. The design is based on internal structure of the brain, the electromagnetic connections that occur inside it, become the inspiration for the architectural space. The perception of the hostile environment of the ocean, enhances a poetic dimension of life, only possible to produce change in the mind and stimulate self healing on a very delicate way.

traditional arab pathern - windows and solar panels


The Girih Tower set in the waterfront, away from dense areas, is divided into 3 volumes to strengthen the expected verticality and to impose its proportions on a very competitive city skyline. The project is based on a series of sustainable-oriented principles that throughout centuries enabled local inhabitants to survive the inconvenient, tropical desert climate. However, it poses a question about the traditional way of perceiving a tower and weather it is supposed to look alike from every side.

while collaborating at the office sou fujimoto architectes

floating volume option


In SĂŁo Paulo, Brazil, a new house is born. Located in a lot on the south side of the city, next to a large preservated area of rainforest, surrounded by a tropical landscape. After several studies, we have developed three proposals. The three options for this house go in different directions, but all of them have scalings, cutouts, solids, voids, and apprehend the surrounding nature.

publications waterfront urban design


As a result of the international workshops on waterfront urban design, I have worked along three years on the compilation of the produced projects.The three volumes gather projects from the different work groups and papers from specialists on the theme. It was necessary to combine the different languages ​​of the projects. The page layout is fairly simple, mostly pictures. The indice and tabs refer to the cover image, helping to locate the different areas facing a map of the Tagus river.

2012 aruba international film festival graphic design

competition


The concept was to combine two elements: the sun and a camera lens. The sun represents the place and the camera lens is the theme of the festival. On top of that, there is the logo, name and date of the festival, to emphasize through the central position. The words in the bottom “SUN, CAMERA, ACTION!” is an adaptation of the familiar expression “lights, camera, action!” trying to give the drawing a quick read of the concept.

2014 5 covers for ba magazine photography

competition | 1st place


To celebrate 22 years of publications, the portuguese architects association opened a photography competition for the cover of 5 magazine editions. The serie titled “tools” was the selected. Here I translate a “staging” office, poetizing the professional practice and its objects not limited to mold “moment”’. The office life is here organized, reinterpreted, mediated and communicated.

skin based on Delaunay Triangulation

in collaboration with gonรงalo silva


What is it? Is it a market? A sports arena? A square? A food court? A movie theater? Or maybe a performance hall? A bit of everything. Places do not possess singular, but multiple and contested identities. Regardless of the function, it’s a theater ideal for social action and a shared space for the community.
