I am an Architect.

Architecture is optimistic - an occasion to improve our lives and our world.
Architecture is experimental - a call for unprecedented realism.
Architecture is knowledge - distinct and engaged. 
Architecture is expertise - a convergence between the professional and the intellectual.
Architecture is personal - a heightened self-consciousness.

At Machado Silvetti I am working on buildings, master plans and, by direct extension, the cities they inhabit and the communities they affect. Our firm was founded on an agenda of experimentation and the distinctive resolution of context, materials and form. We continue to build on these in a vibrant contemporary practice. 

My recent projects include the Global Center for Academic and Spiritual Life in for New York University in Manhattan, the 21 million SF master plan for the Tun Razak Exchange financial center in Kuala Lumpur, and the green ceramic clad addition to the Ringling Museum in Sarasota, Florida. Currently I am working on the Vietnamese-German University, the Denver Art Museum and the Pomona College Museum of Art.

At Harvard's Graduate School of Design I teach design studios and professional practice courses, advise thesis student and serve on the school's practice platform research group. I am currently the school's representative on the Boston Society of Architects' Board of Directors.
