Currently I am attending a Master at the school of architecture ENSA Paris-Belleville and ending one year of Erasmus in Porto. My internship in Critical Concrete is now a way to get involved in a project I endorse the philosophy. This experience helps me to understand the importance of an engaged approach in a city as Porto and the difficulties faced by the association.

I’m working on mycelium insulation panels as a new type of ecological insulation. Between reasearch and practice, this study gives me another point of view on architecture. It’s a way to get involved in a larger debate on ecology issues and a larger research based on natural material properties, which is quite interesting.
