"My only intent is to inspire, the same way so many others inspired me"
Architectural Designer | Photographer
Trained as an Architect, Ricardo has made his career his lifestyle that allowed him to view this world thru a special filter. This filter allowed him to view the ordinary and turn it into extraordinary. He's optimistic views would claim that "No matter how big or small the problem seems to be, everything could be resolved by responsive design."
On his Architectural Design, he allows circulation to dictate major gestures of his design. He believes that architecture only performs effectively when it reacts to external elements along with program requirements. These include: Location, weather, existing circulation, materials, foot print, and restrictions. He performs by always looking for new ways to manifest his design and create a new norm.
On his Photography, he enjoys capturing sharp angles that are often missed by the untrained eye. He aims to recreate a moment in time and invoke emotions by applying different techniques such as visual isolation, blending, contrast and most importantly light.
At the end he has learned to mix Architecture + Photography. He applies the detail oriented skills obtained as a designer to his photography. In the other hand, he applies the ability to play with angles, perspectives and framing spaces learned from his photography to improve his building. He hopes to promote any sort of reaction/emotion, positive or negative by any of his creative design. Only then he will know that his job has a meaning.
"We should never settle; when we feel uncomfortable, challenge and about to break under pressure our time is finally well invested."
