The only permanent thing is change, and only by understanding what is the change that corresponds to our times it will be possible to develop an ethically attitude that articulates tradition with innovation to transcend paradigms and reach more ideal ways of living.

I feel that the change we face seems insurmountable, global warming, over population, economic gap, and yet I believe that there is hope; with small revolutions is possible to unleash changes that have large-scale effects. I always felt a great passion for design and I found one of its strongest manifestations, shaping the space we inhabit, but when I knew that 40% of the energy and carbon footprint are architects responsibility I defined my profile as a professional

A good drawing can lead to a good design, however, it will never be complete without a theoretical support that promotes social changes; the technical knowledge complemented by the understanding of social activity allows creating systems capable of triggering changes.
