About 

I am an architect with 4 years of experience. I had worked in architecture and engineering offices, which consequently lead me to persue my own projects that had been done from the design process to the end of the construction. Recently, i just finished my masters degree in Advanced Sustainable Design from the Univeristy of Edinburgh, and now i am looking forward to explore sustainable strategies in residential or commercial projects, specially taking advantage of the natural conditions of each location.

Education 

University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, GB, Masters, Advanced Sustainable Design

Advanced Sustainable Design asks how we can transform our built environment by putting sustainable development into practice. We are distinctive in being a design-based programme.

The program emphasis is not only on gaining knowledge of environmental technology, but also developing skills in synthesising design solutions specific to place, community and habitat. It consider ideas of community, trade, wellbeing, communication and knowledge networks as purely technical responses are always vulnerable to failure.

Additionally, create and refine strategies to produce settlements and building proposals that embody high standards of design, as well as demonstrating low carbon behaviour. The use of software as IESVE (environmnetal simulations) help to prove our strateges and to understand how much energy the building can consume and how to impove it.
