Simple dwelling I made to apply and study structural optimisations techniques in masonry structures.Whilst the architectural space is fairly simple, I made this video to experiment on cinematic techniques in closed small environments.
Outcome: development of an architectural proposal, project management, measurements, and site assessment, coordination with engineering, materials research and evaluation.
The mexican naval academy renovation project was comissioned through a restricted contest held by government´s navy’s agency.

Bachelor Degree Final Tesis component project
Underlying research: controlling resulting geometry of a parametric design process using variable manipulation in a voronoi/dirichlet tessellation mathematical system. Interactive architecture via non.Conventional environmental reactive materials. Degree thesis component project

The most important component in the thesis project for the undergraduate programme in architecture is the one conducted during the final studio subject. The chosen architectural programme was the one consisted of the research institute in geriatrics. Given its importance and required depth, the architectural solution was to deepen in space’s detail solution, including the proposal redevelopment of its urban location point: the taxqueña central model transfer.
Underlying research: non.Automized structural optimization process for an architectural form based upon quasi-random systems. Workflow for sculptural design and rapid-prototyping techniques. Degree thesis component project
Final tesis component project
The structure was designed looking for a permeable space to delimit the cultural actions realised in the campus from daily life activities. The cover was generated via deconstructing the space and structure containing it.
Underlying research: time optimization of design process in a nurbs-based environment and its relationship with structural analysis software.
In the late 2008, a controversy arouse over the eventual bicentennial tower construction by rem koolhas in mexico city
However, the project was precluded by district authorities given the problematic plot, a historic building potentially affected, district’s inability to fulfil large building’s service requirement and political affairs. All the same the academic community foresaw the problematic situation in an ever-growing low-rised city Continue Reading →
Under programme’s request of regenerating an old tlaxcala textile warehouse and production center, known in mexico by the name of ‘hacienda’, a design project was prepared considering a new bioclimatic hotel.
The hotel would operate underground within an existing vegetation core, around which restaurant, sports and rooms facilities would be placed. Continue Reading →
