Architecture project by Pedro de Azambuja Varela, Maria João de Oliveira and Emmanuel Novo. Following the 2012/13 edition of the Advanced Program in Digital Architecture (CEAAD), promoted by FAUP and ISCTE-IUL, the company AMORIM Isolamentos challenged the Course to design their Pavilion for the CONCRETA 2013 Fair. The students that developed their final research on cork […]
The School of Architecture of Aarhus organized this year 2014 its second edition of HARD CO(u)R(s)E DIGITAL, a set of workshops focused in digital technologies in a pre-holiday format. The key factors in the CorkVault workshop were the use of ICB (Insulation Cork Board), a 5-axis waterjet cutter and Kangaroo along with Grasshopper, so that a full-scale […]
This screen was designed together with Joana Fraga for Pearl Cork. It uses solid cork agglomerate, and is a modular design, so it can grow endlessly.
Architecture project by Pedro de Azambuja Varela This is an ongoing project for the reconversion of an old barn into a house. It is located in a private rural property, and the strategy lies in respecting the traditional construction techniques while adapting them to a contemporary look.
Architecture project by Pedro de Azambuja Varela A carport was in demand. The connection between the polygonal line of the garage roof and the horizontal site wall created this subtle yet obivous solution. The use of a “half-pipe” roof tile was key in this strangely shaped roof.
This is a design I’ve developed together with Joana Fraga for Pearl Cork. The bed itself is made of cork, and was routed from a single block of cork agglomerate with a multiple axis robotic arm.

This work was the result of my studies at CEAAD – Curso de Estudos Avançados em Arquitectura Digital – organized by ISCTE-IUL and FAUP, and hosted in ISCTE-IUL and VFABLAB in Lisbon in 2013-2013. When approached with a raw material such as expanded cork agglomerate, materiality is a concept that is present from the very […]
Poster presented in the Nexus 2012 – Relationships Between Architecture and Mathematics. This presentation was about the relation of a complex geometry with constructive constraints.
Architecture project developed by Pedro de Azambuja Varela and Renata Pinho. The redesign of this apartment had to deal with specific issues: replace the existing floor, redesign the kitchen while keeping the laundry space, and create lots of storage room; while the bathrooms and master bedroom intervention is a welcome bonus to the essential. Walls […]
