Practice Ideology

Twenty-five years of university teaching and architectural practice are consolidated in twenty unique, dedicated and precise projects. This round trip path between the work and the classrooms allows a process of constant reflection where constant changes in society, new ways of living and concern for housing and social institutions are incorporated. Each project is articulated as a small craft exercise and an absolute dedication to detail and good construction practices.
