When I was 13 years old, I walked through the streets of Barcelona and my world changed . . . I saw an artist on the sidewalk, looking back at the street, sitting on a small wooden chair, drawing on a sheet of paper something I didn’t know it was until then. I had a very different and strong feeling at the same time, I stopped in the middle of the road and looked towards where that man with long and untidy hair was inspired; it seems that my world remained in slow motion, I felt every ray of sunshine hitting my face, the breeze passing through the street, and the curves that shaped that house. It was simply Gaudí, who through the Casa Batlló, clearly taught me the passion of my life, Architecture.

I was born in Brazil, on the border with Uruguay; I finished my studies in 2009 on an island in Brazil called Florianopolis. I moved there to start having contact with ships, with the intention of becoming a naval architect. After my graduation in 2007 I went to live in Italy for a year, in Venice, in order to study the Master in Yacht Design. In 2016 I began carrying out another dream, to return to the place of origin of my desire to be an architect, Spain, but now as an architect. . .
