I have participated in the Solar Decathlon Europe 2012 as a Volunteer Architect, for both the assembly and disassembly of the solar houses in the Infrastructures Area and as an observer for the competition.

Education

I obtained my Master's degree in Architecture from the Madrid Polytechnic University, Spain. My final thesis project was a Time Bank which is an interesting solution for moments of economic difficulties. In this project I have dealt with all phases of architecture including building design, structural design, construction details, landscaping of surroundings, etc., developing the project with the guidance of a director from the projects department and a director from the construction department.

Politecnico di Bari, Bari, Italy, Architecture

I spent a year in Italy with an Erasmus grant, where I also worked in teams and learnt to collaborate and acquire an appreciation of other people's experiences and points of view. While I was there I participated in a group project which lasted a year to restore and renovate a 17th century convent, drawing the plans, studying the pathologies and proposing an action plan for its rehabilitation.
