Starting very early cultural production aimed at the promotion of a genuinely Brazilian Architecture, Eduardo deepened in the areas of Design, Architecture and Arts, rescuing several fundamental characteristics of Brazilian Modernism of the 40s. Based on School Carioca, a national style of architecture internationally called Brazilian Style, the artist brings out the whole spirit of that era combining an invigorating nostalgic architecture to what is most modern and sustainable building processes. In defense of a truly Brazilian style, Eduardo has raised questions among academic students of Architecture and managed to change the view of students who had a predilection for international styles and achieved more followers of his vision \”Neo-Modernist\”.

The project is developed in a plot whose bottom coincides with the perimeter of closure of a private neighborhood and beyond the limit, extends sown fields, allowing having a broader vision of the surrounding landscape and also having more privacy in the rear. Coincidentally, the rear facade is oriented to the north, so the most private part would have the best orientation.

iProspect is a leading, global digital marketing agency. The existing iProspect office was located in the Historic Fort Worth Stockyards, and respect for that heritage was implemented into their new office space, situated in Fort Worth’s Cultural District. The design intertwines the familiar, historical elements of Fort Worth with the modern, high-tech industry that iProspect serves. The new space, previously a metal fabrication warehouse built in the 1950s, had plenty of existing character including concrete columns with graffiti and a few masonry partitions, which were incorporated into the design.

This New Orleans neighborhood library is comprised of two buildings joined together with the intention that they function as a whole. One building is a historically significant bungalow built as a residence in 1917, sited prominently on the corner of South Broad Street and Napoleon Avenue. The other building, built in 1993 specifically to function as a library, was home to the main reading room and stock areas. Both buildings were severely flooded by levee breaks attributed to Hurricane Katrina. The bungalow was salvaged and raised for future flood prevention, but the modern addition was deemed necessary for replacement by the Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA).

The design solution for the apartment started from the need to modify the original project that included the execution of a partition wall in front of the entrance; this wall delimited the area deputed to food preparation closed by sliding glass doors and furniture provided with angular. This solution, however, prevented a rational distribution of the residence, having an area of 30 square meters, could contain only a small table and a sofa. The project, planned to greatly reduce the wall of the kitchen until it becomes a shoulder retaining wall system of open living space which becomes a distinctive design element.

When I was a high school student, I had a friend of slight build who always used to carry the Book of Changes with him and was interested in Korean traditional classical music. He was faithful in his religious life, at the same time full of curiosity about the secular world and always paced around restlessly. One day after 20 years, he called me out of the blue. He had in the meantime become a veterinarian and wished to move to India a few years later to lead his own life. After getting together with him for a chat over a drink a couple of times he asked me to design a house where he, his wife and her parents would live together. He wanted me to build an inner court and madang where he could raise animals, as well as a prayer room.

Proposed by Ramirez-Gonzalez Studio architecture firm, the ECO-Sport Facility is a novel design, which accomplishes the re-engineering of the typical basketball court architecture in Puerto Rico into a sustainable building. The concept was based on the firm’s own philosophy by conceiving ‘Architecture as an Adapted Product’ which permits the project architects to improve the structure environmental output within cost-efficiency parameters from early stages of the design development.
