I´m an Italian/Brazilian architect specialized in multi-scale architecture.

My professional experience includes designing masterplan, space planning and construction detailing in large scale projects for industrial sector in California. I also have a background working as an Architect / Project Manager for the residential sector in Brazil, managing the workflow from the meeting with clients and the conceptual design until the detailing and the documentation phases, as well the experience working in masterplan and urban recovery projects in places such as Italy, Russia, Kenya and New Zealand, during the past three years. Currently, besides working as a freelance architect, developing on concepts, planning, detailing and producing as built documentation for construction companies, I’m an active member of the research group known as IMM Design Lab Milano, working on research and projects involving multi-scale architecture, environmental performance and energy efficient applied to urban and building design worldwide.

Due my daily tasks, I developed strong skills in researching, surveying, preparing diagrams, reporting, planning, detailing, presenting and scheduling projects using software such as AutoCAD 2D and 3D, graphic software as Photoshop and CorelDraw, rendering software as Artlantis as well good experience using other programs applied for urban design such as Depthmap and ArcGIS. I have developed also knowledge using software such as Ecotect Analysis, Google Sketchup and Autodesk Revit.

As educational background, I hold a Degree in Architecture and Urban Design obtained by the Santa Catarina Southern University in Brazil as well I submitted in April 2015, my thesis in Sustainable Built Environment to earn a Masters Degree in Architectural Engineering from the Politecnico di Milano.

My major interest as an architect is to find different ways to use and to do architecture and civil engineering, more sustainable, more efficient, more economic and, if possible, more simple.

Currently, I´m looking for new possibilities to develop more my career and especially for chances to join a challenging environment.
