My approach to architecture is to explore the connections between small practical elements and larger strategic frameworks of built form. I want to create an architecture that has non determined boundaries between small and large intentions, public and private space, exterior and interior. The work I have produced is a hybrid of these elements. Landscape becomes built form, interior private space transforms into exteior public space, and intertwined within this is the living environment which clasps and grows to it, redefining its use and appearance through occupation and personalisation

Eduardo has achieved a project that moves with ease between both aspects of the years program, overlaying the request for an exploration of exchanges between open landscape and building and a program dealing with social exchange.

While designing an accommodation centre for asylum seekers, his working method retained a lightness of touch. This meant that supporting investigations led to a proposal which, while sensitive to the brief and devoid of sentimentality, appears confident in its context of an urban fringe.
