I co-run with my father an architecture and engineering firm in Panama City, mostly involved at present with architectural and structural design development work for mid to large-sized public buildings (office, health care, transportation, etc.) While this work’s pragmatic processes are very gratifying, as is the fact that it fulfills an important social concern, I surely missed another facet of architecture work I first experienced in college: that of architectural creation processes unencumbered from market forces, freer to balance utility and expression, able thus to more clearly and powerfully convey meaning, communicate ideas, standpoints, emotions - through form, arrangement, scale, function, relationship to context. Music, painting, literature, and other arts all are moving in their own way. But since unlike other arts, the bulk of the architectural mass is necessarily utilitarian, it’s through academic competitions, college projects, and personal projects that I found I could most freely explore this facet.

These projects, also, have become a vehicle for me through which to explore those ever-present questions: What is architecture? What can architecture be? What should it be? What will it be?

So here I’ve posted some projects from ideas competitions I’ve participated in, as a hobby, over the last few years. I plan to further expand this portfolio by including some built work, and some of my college work. Also, eventually, I hope to post some work done in other areas like photography and graphic design. Thanks for visiting! Read Less

I was born in Panama City in 1972. I studied at the Knowlton School of Architecture (KSA) at The Ohio State University, USA, between 1992 and 1997, during the deanship of José Oubrerie, a close collaborator of Le Corbusier. There, I was able to study under professors such as Eymen Homsi, Robert “Sam” Samuelson, and Michael Cadwell, among others. I obtained my Bachelor of Science in Architecture degree in 1997. During those years I also interned at the leading design-build firm Wight & Company, based outside Chicago, Illinois. Between 1997 and 2004 I led the design development section of Panamanian architecture and engineering firm Samudio Arquitectos. Since 2004 I am a principal at the firm, where, alongside my father and an elite group of professionals of diverse fields, I develop projects of all scopes and sizes. Read Less
