I am an internationally licensed architect, designer, researcher, and academic, with an extensive career having completed projects and competition for multiple typologies like public spaces, urban projects,cultural buildings, mix-used, high rise, corporate, residential, hospitality, educational, and sports buildings. In countries like the United States of America, The Dominican Republic, Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, Argentina, Japan, Korea.

The way I produce architecture is rooted in the understanding of the built environment as a human experience throughout the exploration of contemporary aesthetics, critical design thinking, supported by a poly-technical foundation of  building systems, material, and construction.

Over the past 15 years, I've developed an extensive knowledge of BIM systems for project delivery, computational design, digital fabrication, and design process workflow, which integrated coding, high performance, complex geometry, and performative simulations in all phases of design.

My career has pivoted between the professional, research, and academic field. This has allowed me to build and intertwine experience leading research investigations and courses of architectural design, structural design, construction system, applied math, building morphology, and digital design tools in the most prestigious schools of architecture in Buenos Aires.
