News: Wilfredo Mendez participates as Jury at Tectonic Excursions Design Studio

On October 24, 2011 Wilfredo Mendez was invited by Prof. Manuel Colon Amador and Prof. Carlos E. Perez Ortiz as jury at their design studio Excursiones Tectónicas (Tectonic Excursions) at the School of Architecture of the University of Puerto Rico.

The design studio is first in its type in the School of Architecture and Puerto Rico. The studio is based on tectonic analysis, morphogenesis and bio-structural patterns for the adaptation of architecture to different building conditions. The undergraduate students seek to foster the integration of form with structure and matter in order to improve the whole design performance.
