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 […]
I was asked to teach the fundamentals of Grasshopper, so I developed an 8 hour crash course in which I taught the fundamentals of parametric design along with the Grasshopper flow paradigm. The themes rangd from the basic variable radius with slider to an example of genetic algorithmic optimization with Galapagos. Lectured in February 2013
This is the video stream of short talk I gave in Vienna. The talk was about an experience developed at the DFL with José Pedro Sousa, about the possible digital flow in architecture projects that deal with stone heritage.

Presentation in the Digital Darq event. Showcase of personal research on cork stereotomies.
Intensive course with the purpose of teaching the BIM approach through the software ArchiCAD. The students were not acquainted with the software and should end the 16 hour programmr with capabilities of building a BIM model with informed components, such as slabs, walls and windows, with a printable layout. This course was taught at Espaço2D […]
In 18th May, I will lecture a workshop in Lisbon, within the GEOMETRIAS’ 14 cycle of conferences. From the website: “Connexions between complex geometries and the most advanced digital technologies allow the introduction of new multidisciplinary approaches in teaching, researching and the professional practice of the related creative areas. What role is there, nowadays, for […]
Presentation of the article “Genetic Algorithms in Architecture – History and Relevance”. About Arquibio 2013 The fourth edition of ArquiBio, an event that took off in recent years an international dimension, is jointly organized by the Faculty of Science and Technology, University of Coimbra and collaborators linked to several European and American universities. This […]
At the request of Prof. Alexandra Paio, two lectures were given to the students of the 3rd grade of Architecture. The purpose was to accomplish an exercise on Shape Grammars, yelding very interesting results. These lectures were carried out in May 2013
Lecture in the APROGED annual encounter about the Gauss Curvature and new ways of communicating it through Grasshoppper visualization. Lecture in April 2013
