Carlos is passionate about changing the way we experience buildings, not just how we see them but how we interact with the space, the environment and user experience. Carlos has been strongly motivated in building performance; an advocate of the AIA 2030 movement, an early LEED professional and a energy building modeler himself, architecture for him is not just form and function, but form, function, performance and  interaction.
