Bienvenidos a CienciaPR, una red de recursos para todos los interesados en las ciencias y en Puerto Rico.
Since 2008 I am exploring the scientific dimension of design and architecture. My M.Arch thesis on biomimicry principles for antiseismic concrete structures introduces a new conception of architectural adaptability. Based on biologically-inspired design, I proposed a set of structural rules in order to improve its resilience and sustainability. Since 2012, I'm leading BioTectonica, a design studio that seek to foster architectural efficiency throughout the lens of biology, thereby upgrading building's technology into a living-based status. I would like to engineer living architecture for the future.
My M.Arch thesis titled Principles of a Biotectonic Culture was completed at the School of Architecture of the University of Puerto Rico. It receives the Jaime Cobas Award in 2010 and was recently recognized by Thinking-In-Practice | Cecil Balmond Studio at London as the most outstanding research intertwining art, science, design and technology (competition Grand Winner - 2013).
BioTectonica R&D Studio has been severaly published as a novel architecture studio fostering the crossover between science and design in order to engineer new building's technology for the Caribbean natural hazards.
