I am a restless architect and urban planner, always in search of new challenges. In this search for challenges, I try to challenge everything that is obvious and collective, I always work with other professionals, because I believe that creating new solutions are fundamental in processes with other people. My main achievement was to be awarded internationally with a project reusing conteiners, showing that even working in a city in the interior of my country, it is possible to do different and contribute to the production of design and architecture. I contribute to society by producing knowledge as a teacher in postgraduate programs, being a professional adviser in the national architects' autarchy and by always working in teams with professionals, trainees and clients, in a collective and plural manner. I believe that I become an interesting person when positioning myself in a restless way and always want to look for new ways to see the world and solve problems, be they in design or architecture.

ABOUT

The 135 Jardins Project was conceived with the premise of building an iconic residential and commercial development - to be considered a landmark among so many buildings already built. Its basic volume was designed to be a prism, in which the apartment tower interconnects with its base and retail area; with this positioning to differentiate itself from competitors in the market.

ABOUT

On the iconic facade, the mobile windshield system was designed to bring a design in constant motion. This ventilated facade reflects the concept of the project aimed at the new generation. This was the conceptual beginning for the development of the project. The result is a building that is constantly changing, where people will always see a different design, thus creating a landmark for the city and pedestrians, a new icon

ABOUT

On the iconic facade, the scenic lighting system was designed using electronic glasses that emit light. The ventilated facade reflects the concept of the project addressed to the new generation. That was the conceptual start for the development of the project. The sculptural mask design turns the concrete structure into a sinuous form instead of a heavy volume, the outcome is a landmark for the city and the pedestrians, making up a new iconic urban landmark.
