My name is Oscar Pina currently I'm working on my thesis presentation at The University of Tokyo in Japan. Besides doing architecture I'm into street photography, so once in a while I stroll around the city photographing strangers doing their life. Since a little kid, I always wondered about how and why people behaved in certain ways, like how their personal backgrounds influenced them in order to be like how they are now, plus the desire to design spaces for our exploration and contemplation, understanding the user's mindset, made me go for architecture when graduated from high school.
Right now my main research is about how Social Network Sites affect our cities and vice versa, but also I have experience designing homes, landscape architecture and furniture. My past experience shown me that people that I used to work to liked my independent way of working and mostly my graphical presentation skills.
