Hej ! My name is Marie Lou Valdes, and I am currently studying a Master in Achitecture and Urban design at Chalmers University, Sweden. Here is the record of my past, present and future works, with different scales and programmes.
The "portfolio" section shows projects from newest to latest, both in Chalmers for the master and ENSAM (Ecole Nationale supérieure d'Architecture de Montpellier) for the bachelor.
The "skills" section represent my progress in the knowledge of different architecture softwares and machines.
If you want to contact me, links to my LinkedIn, Issuu and Email are shown at the bottom. Enjoy !
The goal of the studio is to define a subject of interest, carry on the research that could lead to the master thesis.
I choose to investigate vernacular architecture though climate. I started to state that "Vernacular architecture is built through the years for a reason" Whether this reason is good (climate related) or not (lack of means) the answer is always useful:
1) Use data to design new sustainable buildings
2) Use data to improve imperfect vernacular buildings
Description : Tool to compare climate and architecture data through vernacular constructions; in order to provide solutions to site specific problems (temperature, humidity, seism, storms ...) by linking building technics around the world.
