ABOUT ME Define my personality as someone determined and assertive, who enjoys finding creative solutions to complex problems. I truly admire the process of creation that underlies for an example the Architecture in all forms and expressions. From the sensibility of the creation to the un derstanding of the right solutions in each case, especially when one has to balance the artistic vision with the constant functionality. Since I graduated from the University of Minho (Escola de Arquitectura) in Portugal, with a Master´s degree in Architecture, that I seek a professional challenge in which my contribution to a project is fulled by ambition, motivation and excitement. The professional experience, however short, has taught me skills such as adaptation, fast-learning and creativity, all on a strong teamwork basis. I am a very sociable person, perfectly comfortable in working as part of a multicultural team with people from all backgrounds and cultures who have the widest perspectives, ideas and vision.

GLASS TOWER In this proposal of designing a tower in the historic city center, seeks to revitalize an area that gives to the center a strategic point where its possible unify the city as a whole by view. The first concern that came up was that building wasn’t seen as a breaking visual element in space. In consequence, the main objective of this project, was to work in a building in which predominate the visual permeability inside and, mainly, related to the outside. To cope with this concept, were used materials that through its flexibility allowed the development of the project, as it was thought. The Tower, designed in steel and glass, allows through its levels, different views of Guimarães’s city from various angles, providing a view through 360º. The solids that compose the tower priorize near and far scale. The tower was thinking to transmit the similar sensation when we come in historical center. The cyber coffee was thinking to transmit the same sensation as some of coffee/bar situated in the historical center, where the ramp represents the steep streets and the coffee space represents between walls space, where is no side windows, just zenithal lighting. In this first moment, is controlled visual space and priority is given to the view from the tower. In the second moment, leaving the cyber coffee, we have reception area where we have full visibility again. The choice of materials for the tower, which are glass and steel, gave up because it allows a stable structure and with a huge potential for visibility, which is one of the main tower purposes, since the intention is not interfere sharply in the pre-existing landscape.

GARAGE THEATER The garage theater was developed at a attractive entertainment area in the historical center of guimarĂŁes. The space selected for this project was a ruin building and the main objetctive since the bigning was to preserve the existing architectural portuguese tipology of the building as arround the work area. Despite the modern and contemporary set up design, it was always a concerning about ally the new building with all dynamic of the area around. The idea was inspiried on the historical center small streets,where its possible to find a monumental surprise in almost each corner. In that way the building was thinking to be a interior experimento of these magical sensation of walk for the historical center where was developed a path that embrace all buildings with mixed small and large corridors that represents the initial concept.

DREAM HOUSE The main objective of this project was rethink the way to construct an idea of house, and thinking in isolated spaces with more sense of specificity and based in a reflective analisis of empirical experiences. The house was designed to be the mirror of your creator, within this caractethrists divided in two specifics cores, the core where te creaotr is the protagonist, and the core where the interior of the house is the protagonist. In that way assumes that the meaning of interior could be a kind of methaforical sense when crosses an aesthetic sense of domesticy and seek an aproach based in memories, epxeriences and individual desires. Also the assembly becomes a association bteween real and fictional sides. B

In the project design was proposed rethink process and metodologies of creation. It was establisehd thar the tools to using in this specifical project should be more more unconventional then usually used, which can be translated into more visual and creative aspects that helps externalize enviroments, routines and feelings.

BOAVISTA - PORTO

General profile

The main objective of this study was reactivate economic activities of the area through new gears that allow such a feat. Faced with a problem found in the circulation of public transport, which involved the study area, one of the alternatives to be applied would be the implementation of a public transport that should be acessible and circular, represented by TRAM, which integrated with other suggested gears for the expanded area, would allow the economic and cultural revival of Boavista’s Avenue. 18

Diagnostics


The Boavista´s Avenue and the transition, are at the same time a cause and a consequence of the evolution process of the Porto´s city. The avenue presents itself as a transition both in its longitudinality and transversality, at various scales, and independently of the consolidation of the urban mesh. The avenue presents a heterogeneous character thus allowing greater relation with the rest of the city, being provided essentially in the relation of empty spaces. Strategy

MASTHER´S THESIS FROM UTOPIA TO REALITY:

The Influence of Technology on Architecture´s evolution

ABSTRACT This research was developed by exploring how certain utopian ideologies and some imaginary contributed to architecture development either through science fiction (often explored in movies) or by technology evolution - that has never hesitated in an incessant demand for the future. The analysis is focused on two periods of transition in the history of mankind, by expressing a number of very important moments that changed the course of history (nineteenth to the twentieth and twenty-first century to the twentieth century), emphasizing the role of technology as a subject of great importance in both periods of transition and visible effects on social and urban 22 transformation. From numerous different cases, was legitimized throughout each chapter, a conclusion which associates the factor “ hope” as analogous characteristic of all periods, also as an essential basis for structuring and shaping the future of the city and the architecture, and that the triangulation of these factors are valid even when they are inserted into utopian or dystopian standards because these are also a reflection of a criticism that should not be ignored. Taking into account the cross-cutting issue that it comes to this work (since nothing we take as safe), this research allowed indicate a possible way that the architecture may follow in a tomorrow’s future: we finish speaking of “immaterial”.

Access An expansion of the factory was requested for this project, where another pavilion of support to the existing building should be built. It was then developed a pavilion where the costs were the smallest possible for the client, and that presented aesthetically according to the concept of the factory. The building is located in the city of Trofa - Portugal and is a great generator of jobs in the region.

For the selected materials, it was always taken into account those that increased the energy efficiency of the building, as well as the functional level of each one. The colors represent the strong identity of the brand and its use creates intervals in the building breaking the continuity of the same.
