06 sustainable campus

This project had the goal to plan and design the future urban settlement of Leonardo Campus of Politecnico di Milano, in Italy. The work was developed in team work and the aim was to create a new public spaces/ places in the campus across the four themes of sustainability: people, environment, accessibility and energy. The masterplan was developed in a 1.2000 scale and the final proposal in a 1.1000 scale. This final one proposed a set of small intervents to solve the sustainable problems found. Then we have proposed a new design for the street Via Edoardo Bonardi that nowadays have a physical barrier created by the rails of the public transports. This proposal presents a continuity of the 18th century Politecnico buildings, by transforming the old street into a new public space, making the connection between the oldest buildings and the new construction. The latter is located in the upper part of the drawing. This new small constructions and the transformation of the old street into a central line enables a better accessibility between the different buildings of the campus and unify all the space, to understand that the space works as one.

08 student´s center

After the work in the 1.1000 scale we developed a small part of the whole project. The scale chosen were the 1.100 and the 1.50 and the parto f the projetc chosen was the new square designed to connect the two distinct zones that existed in the campus. In that square we’ve proposed a multifunctional building, that distinguishes itself by its shape and by the student’s services that provides. We considered important questions to turn this building into a central point of the whole campus. We have created simple accesses like the ones of the German Reichstag, in Berlin. Also the light and the temperature were taken in consideration by the orientation of the building and the materials chosen.

Urban Riqualification

before and after expo 2015 This project was done in team work with the aim to design the future space where the Expo 2015, in Milan, Italy, will take place. The project took into account the legal standards, according to the municipal legislation for this kind of urbanistic project, and also some parts of the EXPO 2015 project design by Herzog and De Meuron atelier, and already approved. We’ve created a long central axis where the principal local services can be developed, such as schools, administrative offices, market, among others. With this axis we’ve restricted the circulation to public transports, like bus or bike (bikeme service). The latter can be rented near the Rho Fiera exhibition pavillons, that is connected with the EXPO area by a bicycle path. One of the two extreme points of the axis is square with a theater, and the other one is a hill.

14 As the main theme of the EXPO is the agriculture, we decided to keep from the Herzog and De Meuron project the big green surfaces, both public and private. The public ones would be held by the townhall, and the private ones, would be held by the residents. In general, this project resulted in a well articulated infrastruture with residences and public services.



16 student’s center

The idea of this project was to create a building that allows the visitors to have different points of view to the exterior space, reforced by the inside-outside binomial, created by the domes that exists on the roof. The insertion of the building results, in the upper level, an inaccessible roof that works like an extension of the public space. The project included also a big underground car parking developped in 4 floors. Due to the lack of parcking spaces in the ĂĄrea, in this project i provide more of them, that could also serve other important buildings like facultys, restaurants and public services. The entrance to the building is made by a long ramp that is larger in the arriving point. The ramp was design as a transition element which goal is to slowdown the transition between the inside and the outside in sense of extending the different sensations along this path. Inside the building, a big foyer was design, like an open space that connects different rooms like the auditorium or the exhibition room.

In section i try not to emphasize the building in order to respect the existent building of the faculty, located behind, right next to the main entrance of the learning center. Developped in two floors, the external material of the building is much more lighter in the upper level than in the lower floor, darker to reinforce the idea of a base. The materials chosen were diffenretn kind of rocks. All the construction was based on rock, giving the notion of a strong building beside the large amout of openings that it have to the exterior space.

Colective Houses



In this project was requested to project a development plan, and then to propose a set of collective houses. I proposed the creation of a serie of buildings, perpendicular to the road, leaving the car parking behind. Between the volumes i’ve created a colective green space. The internal distribution it’s done by an independt construction, symbolizing the transition between the outside and inside space and leave the ditribution gallery clear of any construction.

22 informal

This Project locates itself in the Southest of Nea Kameni island. Thira island has amazing views, respected by its buildings. Nea Kameni being an uninhabited island with a few ports and amazing views became, in our point of view, an interesting place to develop the project that wants to be discreet and smooth in the landscape. The program takes advantage of this paradisiacal point and respects the location and the main characteristics of the territory, shaping the forms being half-burried and connected by irregular routes and always taking the most of the views. The main functions as wellness center, spa or conference room are located in the major buildings that connect the public to the private spaces.

22 memory

This proposal has searched, more than a specific program, a good urban space. We propose the redesign of the street Monsenhor Soares Fonseca creating new public spaces. The form of the tanatorio creates also a new square, but private. This pivate courtyard, oriented to south, comunicates itself directly with multiple services, included in the building, such as cafeteria, florist and administrative services, which include simultaneously connections to the inner space of the Tanatorio. We established with this form different pathways with different qualities, interior-exterior, covered-uncovered, light shadow, around the central courtyard. In the internal space, the foyer is divided by vertical slats of wood, to create two type of spaces, one more public, associated with the atrium, and another, more private, related to the private patio. Our proposal therefore aimed the creation of reflection spaces that bring our memory to us.

GO 03 Memória Pretendemos com a nossa proposta organizar não só um programa com conteúdo específico como, simultaneamente, organizar o desenho do espaço urbano onde se insere. Redesenhamos a Rua do Monsenhor Fonseca Soares passando a circulação a fazer-se num único sentido N-S, inserindo desta forma 2 linhas de passeio até à Rua de Guerra Junqueiro. Com a pré-existência de árvores num dos lados do passeio desenhamos um passeio mais largo que se conecta com o nosso projecto. No encontro com o nosso volume proposto, este desmultiplicase em planos que abrem quer para a sua transversalidade quer para o novo largo criado onde se conectam os espaços de função social como a cafetaria, a florista e os serviços administrativos, que incluem simultaneamente conexões ao espaço interior do Tanatório. O volume é em forma de “U”, orientado a Sul, que cria um espaço privado. Tendo em conta a projectação de um Tanatório, pareceu-nos importante estabelecer, com o desenho arquitetónico, a criação de percursos de diferentes qualidades, interior-exterior, coberto-descoberto, luz-sombra, em torno de um pátio central. O pátio central é enriquecido com a existência de espaços ajardinados e com árvores que formam uma barreira ao ruído urbano.

A organização interna desenvolve-se a partir de diversos pontos de fuga que apelam ao infinito. O foyer é divido internamente por um ripado de madeira vertical, que forma assim um espaço de carácter mais público, associado ao átrio, e outro, mais privado, de recolha, relacionado com o pátio privado. É em torno deste pátio central que se desenha um claustro de três lados que conecta todos os espaços do edifício. A nossa proposta pretende assim criar espaços de interioridade e reflexão que nos remetem para a nossa memória.

24 bamboo

The idea of using bamboo in the design of this temporary bar was sustained by their potential in terms of lighting, reuse, low cost price, and also allows an easy construction of the proposal. Bamboo is a reusable material, and you can use it to build furniture and storage spaces, using thereby an innovative material with multiple capabilities. In this propose, we try to take advantage of the light and the minimalistic interior space. Related to the lightning, the use of the ligh through bamboo canes allows to get excellent results, creating thin vertical slits of light, quite unique, that transform this project in an icone.
