THE ARCHITECTURAL JOURNEY
Architecture is the longest journey of my life, it started with the early childhood travels around Europe with my family.
Through the journey, unexpected revelations lead to choices such as moving to Lisbon, study and work with the Masters, and then to London to experience diverse ways of practicing Architecture, back in Portugal, I have finally reached the independence always dreamed of, and I am now giving back the fascination i received as a child.
The world of construction is tempted to deliver easy, standard, and safe answers to a question, Architecture does the opposite, deliver a truly unique story, I try my best to be mindful in understanding what a project is all about, and look for a radical, synthetical material statement.
When inspired by some places I tend to produce Artworks that I called "Digital Sketches", these are an exercise that helps me practice the relationship between Landscape, Architecture, Photography, and Visualizations, for instance, every Digital Sketch is an Architectural wish.
Amongst some early successes of my young practice, the House in Colares has been published in the most prestigious architectural magazines worldwide and soon more will follow.
