Arena review: Wanda metropolitano

During these five years working in Sport and Entertainment (S&E) changed the way how I spend my free time. I never have been the kind of architect who travel to see buildings. But now, when I have the chance to visit any S&E venue, I don’t think twice. The last time I went to Madrid, I had the cha... more...

Five years in Entertainment and Sport Architecture

I’ve been five years working at HOK London in Entertainment and Sports group. My previous experience was mainly related to façade optimization, double curved surfaces, rationalization and generative design. Therefore, when I started my work at HOK I had many new things to learn. During these y... more...

Common Supervised Learning Models

Supervised learning its about to taking examples of inputs and outputs (labels) and then, given a new input, the model needs to predict the output. Supervised Learning is one of the biggest branches in Machine learning. The following table describes the most common algorithms for supervised learni... more...

Diversity app

Diversity in an application that use artificial intelligence to understand human expressions to generate shapes. Unity was used as the main VR platform and HTC vive to interact and visualize. Everyone understand Virtual Reality will enhance some human activities and this is also applicable to the fi... more...

TALCA, Re-Topologies Workshop

Lo que me interesa imprimir en los alumnos, es el concepto de sistema emergente. Simples elementos interactuando entre si crean un sistema que se ajusta, adapta, refina, integra de acuerdo con el medio que los rodea. Entender los sistemas emergentes como reglas geométricas y aritméticas que se repit... more...

Iconic Road Bridge construction images

Digital Fabrication The fabrication process implies the use of technologies like CNC, Laser Cut, 3D print, Drones, etc. Although the construction had gain speed and security, the human factor during the assembly process is still necessary. A bottle neck effect emerge, the speed is reduced and the... more...

The report interviewed a wide range of professionals and students related to the construction industry. During the interviews and discu... more...

Iconic Road Bridge design optimization

Design Optimization is a complex task, because involves design criteria and iterative decisions over the same problem until some condition is met. The optimization process involves a series of constraints related to costs, fabrication and aesthetics. The correct use of mathematics (Linear algebra, g... more...

Flux.IO - Moving to the cloud

Early this year, I was invited with some colleagues to San Francisco to test a new technology called FLUX.IO. The idea behind flux is quite smart: You design a building using parametric tools and coding, like Grasshopper, Dynamo or GenerativeComponents. Instead to save your model and “code” in your... more...
