André Caminoa is an architect, researcher, and a university professor living in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Initially graduated in architecture (UBA, 2002), he has been working in the architectural and construction industry for more than 25 years, providing to his client’s design management and engineering, procurement, construction and consulting services, with a solid knowledge of project management and quality standards. 
Since 2018, he is teaching as an assistant professor in Architectural Design at FADU UBA. In 2019 he has earned in a university teaching contest the position of adjunct professor in Science, Technology and Society Studies at UNAB. Since 2016 to 2019, he has worked in UNAB as an Infrastructure Project Director. 
In 2014, in parallel with the beginning of his thesis for a Master Program in Advanced Architectural Design at UBA, he has co-founded a high tech-high risk project named “Printed Architecture”, an envisioned start-up focused on research and development of design methods and models, and applied technology geared to the utilization of 3D Printing technology in architecture for habitat fabrication. 
At the end of 2019, he finished writing the manuscript of his thesis and he is awaiting the opportunity to defend next year his master’s dissertation that is focused on the application of 3D Printing technology in architecture. 
In 2013, as a product of his extensive research in experimental architecture and sustainability, joined with international associates he has co-founded the UNISPACE Project, an advanced research group geared to space architecture and its potential applications on Earth or off world locations. He has been a competitor in several contests and competitions and, he has authored and co-authored several papers. As a creative and strategic thinker, he has explored the synergy between arts, science and technology and since 2011, he is an occasional contributor of the Lifeboat Foundation.
