I am an architecture student from Constanza, Dominican Republic, raised in New York City. Although superbly fascinated by, drawn to, and most of all receptive of the interminable ideas and topics architecture has and will continue to yield I am currently inquiring on the production of architectural Affects and Effects through contemporary techniques, Ornament with its potential to engage architecture with culture, as well as Subdivision 3D modeling. I am also particularly fascinated by and read extensively on Cities as well as the role of Philosophy and Mathematics in our discipline.
As of January 2014 I concluded my research on Le Corbusier’s relationship with Oscar Niemeyer, by extension, Le Corbusier’s relationship with Latin America. This interest was part of a larger framework on the subject of European Modernism's influence on 20th century Latin American architecture.
This Winter 2014 I am embarking on research regarding the role of technology and mechanical systems within our cities and their potential both in use and adaptation in architecture as well as possibilities of space-making despite their rapidly changing conditions.
Please feel free to contact me regarding any questions, interest, or opportunities.
