MONOGRAPHIES

FUNDAMENTAL; From the Latin fundus (base, background) – mentum (instrument, result) means “that serves as a base, which forms the main part of something”.

Fundamental illustrates through images the principles, the basis, the instruments that show my approach to each of my projects and that settle the origin of my architecture.

In a world strongly marked by the image, I propose an architecture that tends to be unremarked, acting discreetly to value its context. The means with which I approach architecture are elemental : geometry, spatial proportions, the distribution of light, precision in details, materials and textures. I work on abstraction, reducing spaces to a minimal expression where any arbitrary sign has been removed.

I seek simplicity through an economy of means and understanding the elements and the idea behind the project in a very direct way. This is what my architecture is all about, composition understood as an interaction of elements that constitute a unit in perfect balance. A unit that has been sculpted and not made up of different parts, which speaks of my approach to architecture as a sculpture . Then we achieve harmony, when the human being is able to recognize those composition tools as a unit making space his own. I search for beauty through timeless ambiances capable of making us lose the notion of time, because architecture do not speak of fashions and is meant to remain through time.

Edited in three languages, Fundamental was conceived as a limited edition of fifty copies.
