"Space Architecture is the theory and practice of designing and building inhabited environments in outer space (it encompasses architectural design of living and working environments in space related facilities, habitats, and vehicles). These environments include, but are not limited to: space vehicles, stations, habitats and lunar, planetary bases and infrastructures; and earth based control, experiment, launch, logistics, payload, simulation and test facilities. Earth analogs to space applications may include Antarctic, airborne, desert, high altitude, underground, undersea environments and closed ecological systems. Designing these forms of architecture presents a particular challenge to ensure and support safety, sustainability, habitability, reliability, and crew efficiency, productivity and comfort in the context of extreme environments."

I'm an architect by training and assistant professor in a graduate architecture course, however as a independent researcher my interest are space architecture, spacecraft design and integration of systems engineering. Last year, I finished writing the manuscript and presented my second master degree thesis that is focused on the application of 3D Printing technology in architecture, and I hope to have the chance to defend it next year, in order to continuing my education in a future PhD. program. The followings are some of the projects developed for, and in collaboration with the UNISPACE Group.
