Raphael is driven by a natural curiosity for innovation and seeks answers to unsolved questions.
He enjoys working on projects or art installations that lead in border areas, where phenomena of physics must be understood to recreate these ‘natural’ effects. Raphael applies the knowledge derived from experimenting with these physical phenomena in built environment, very often supporting low-tech solutions.
As an expert in thermal simulation analysis for indoor and outdoor thermal comfort modelling, Raphael has not only developed strategies for low energy and self-sustaining buildings, but also designed passive measures for outdoors, believing it is key to activate the public realm in all climate zones. He manages projects worldwide.
