// COMPUTATIONAL OPTIMISATION STRATEGY // An exploration to connect entry points in a plot for means of access, in a urban setting offering shades, across visibility, optimised for trails adapting to the existing landscape DESIGN OBJECTIVES

Hey Jarvis, let’s Collaborate!

This project explores a framework for Human-Robot Collaboration (HRC) and behavioural fabrication, focusing on constructing a Jenga-like tower using small timber blocks. Using the Agent-Based Modeling system (ABxM) from the Institute for Computational Design and Construction (ICD), a communication network was established integrating a human participant, a computer vision system, and an interactive audio interface. … Read more

COMUNIDAD FRACTAL – Rehabilitación de la vivienda de interés social en El Salvador

Diversos complejos multifamiliares de interés social en El Salvador, construidos en los años 50’s por el Instituto de Vivienda Urbana (IVU), actualmente se enfrentan a condiciones de deterioro debido a la situación de abandono a consecuencia de la posguerra, la cual propició un alza en la migración y el desempleo, traduciéndose a un estado de … Read more

Shape it, feel it

Working in 3D CAD environments can be restrictive. While most CAD software provides tools for creating shapes and generating ideas, they often rely on a mouse and keyboard, or are very expensive. “Shape it, Feel it” investigates opportunities to generate shapes using a computer’s webcam and hand gestures. We utilize cheap and readily available hardware … Read more

NOISENSE emerges as a dynamic tool that facilitates the visualization of otherwise visually imperceptible phenomena within spaces. Through sound simulation and virtual prototyping techniques, NOISENSE aims to go beyond the limitations of human auditory perception, thereby enabling the visualization and replication of sound atmospheres. By conceptualizing sound as a spatial field, the online app allows … Read more


Concept In this custom webapp, we seriously (and jokingly) consider and design for the non-human. While walking my dog, Lumen, and thinking about this project, I noticed how he always picks up a stick and brings it home. This brings him happiness and reason to behave while on our walks. In the spirit of thinking … Read more

COMUNIDAD FRACTAL – de la vivienda próxima a la comunidad de bienestar
