UNDERGRADUATE STUDIO 2006 / COTTON WHOLESALE MARKET PISCO, ICA, PERĂš

COTTON WHOLESALE MARKET A light volume housing vendor stands is contained by two heavy storage volumes that in the whole define an urban park and separate service area from public space. The Market of brise-soleil walls and roof is oriented north-south to filter southern hemisphere light and let winds from the south and southeast create a cross-ventilated environment in an arid region with barely any rain.

UNDERGRADUATE STUDIO 2007 / INTERNATIONAL AQUARIUM COSTA VERDE, LIMA, PERÚ

INTERNATIONAL AQUARIUM A pier penetrates the sea below its level. From its interior space, glass volumes of fish tanks grow out of it, allowing air and light to come inside. The roof of the pier is a continuation of the shore’s public space and the sculptural glass volumes define an artificial geological landscape. The Aquarium is like an underwater cave of glowing mineral formations.

UNDERGRADUATE STUDIO 2008 / DISMOUNTABLE ACOUSTIC SHELL LIMA, LIMA, PERĂš

DISMOUNTABLE ACOUSTIC SHELL Overlapping layers of wooden panels create the ideal section for sound reflection both to the audience, with its convex cantilevering canopy, and to the musicians, with its concave back. The Acoustic Shell breaks the traditional massive type by being a luminous hovering surface that allows the surroundings to be part of the stage.

UNDERGRADUATE THESIS 2009 / AMPHITHEATRE FOR THE DANCE ‘MARINERA’ TRUJILLO, LA LIBERTAD, PERÚ

AMPHITHEATRE FOR THE DANCE ‘MARINERA’ Concentric floating elliptical rings, for the upper seating, and a cavea carved out of the ground, for the lower seating, define both an Amphitheatre for the traditional peruvian dance ‘marinera’ and open public grounds when no spectacle is taking place. A linear volume of ‘marinera’ dance classrooms, oriented south to catch predominant winds, complements the amphitheatre both defining its public space and serving the spectacle venue with shared service area.

PRIVATE COMMISSION 2011 / AMELINCKX BEACH HOUSE PUERTO FIEL, LIMA, PERĂš

AMELINCKX BEACH HOUSE A light structure for social gathering and a heavy volume of sleeping quarters define a materially intermingled object that floats to catch views of the ocean from a plot at the ravine. The House seeks to intertwine the traditional mud-straw-bamboo linear language with the more contemporary language of the concrete plates and slabs.

M.ARCH2 FALL 2011 / MONTGOMERY COUNTY COURTHOUSE CHRISTIANSBURG, VA, USA

MONTGOMERY COUNTY COURTHOUSE A horizontal complex of courtrooms facing gardens, connected by hallways with intimate spaces, the Courthouse seeks the ideal environment for a building that celebrates justice, benevolence and meditation. A giant tower serves as an iconic beacon on a macro urban scale while a smaller tower, containing the clerks working space, serves as an icon on a micro urban scale.

M.ARCH2 SPRING 2012 / ROANOKE ARCHITECTURE MUSEUM ROANOKE, VA, USA

ROANOKE ARCHITECTURE MUSEUM A composition within virtual boundaries connects three different streets through its interior and its roof surface at the corner of a city block which is, at a larger scale, the corner of the downtown. The Museum defines the corner of the block through an urban gesture, a massive ramp, and the corner of the downtown through an urban icon, a giant brick wall that filters southern light. Vitrines allow pedestrians to peep into the museum, partially lit by ‘light pipes’ carved out of the giant wall.

M.ARCH2 THESIS 2012 / REFUGE IN BELÉN VALLEY BELÉN VALLEY, CHACHAPOYAS, PERÚ

REFUGE IN BELÉN VALLEY Three gigantic monuments constructed mainly out of local yellow limestone stand as watching titans over the meandering valley. The Refuge provides a disconnection from urbanity and the essential spaces for travelers: a watching tower, a gathering space, and a water spring. Through a contemporary dialectic of lintels, flat stones and corbelling stones of different scales, the monuments rest on top of stepped terraces pierced by a meandering water canal.
