About

b. 1986, HK.

The content of this website intend to show my academic work in architecture and my personal interests in design and photography. I am a fourth year architecture student in the class of 2019 of the B.Arch Program at Carnegie Mellon University and intend on pursuing minors in architectural history and photography. 

Born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, my hometown was my first exposure to architecture. Primarily inspired by architecture from Brazil, I started photographing the connection between the urban city and nature close to home and slowly expanded to other countries and cities such as Bangkok, South Africa, Peru, Chile and more.

In the summer of 2017, I worked at Bernardes Arquitetura, located in Rio de Janeiro. As an intern, I worked primarily on the project development of a residential home in Gavea, project development of a hotel in Arpoador and schematic design phase of a residential home in Barra. Most of my work included detailing, renderings and producing drawings to be sent to the worksite. 

In the summer of 2016 I worked at an upcoming creative design studio in Miami called KoDA Miami. As an intern, I worked in the schematic design and design development phase on various projects such as Etnia Barcelona, Meridian Ave and Garden House. 

Outside of architecture I enjoy photography, exploring new places and  reading!
