    Acts of translation deal with the shift from one mode of description to another, creating gaps in perception that challenge what can be construed, or misconstrued, to be either real or fictive. Differentiating itself from literal translation [metaphrase] or parallel translation [paraphrase], the project Semblances instead produces translations that attempt to render things with varying degrees of latitude and to bring that rendition together with its source. . . .

    Within a discipline where the exact translation of virtual instructions, in the form of drawings or codes, to their material actualization has historically played a decisive role, the current use of algorithmic design tools and computer numerical control (CNC) fabrication technologies would seem to all but eliminate the possibility for exactitude to submit to some external corrupting influence. Paradoxically, the seduction of algorithmic precision has become partially exhausted in the fulfilled promise of its own fidelity. The absolute control of geometry and its materialization suppresses the potentiality of that which exceeds the firmitas, or solidity, of inert matter. . . .

    servo: This commissioned proposal for a 250 sqm private residence in a suburb of Stockholm engages the entropic potentials of the interaction between organic and synthetic matter in architecture. This project exploits the latent responsiveness of energetic exchanges – specifically the transfer of heat, moisture and light through an architectural medium and their effects on more extensive ecologies.

    SERVO: This speculative proposal for a 4,000 sqm bioscience innovation center with a hydrodynamic vegetated roof, located in the Albano region of Stockholm, reconsiders the extensive green roof typology to produce an occupiable roofscape characterized by immersive depth. The green roof is designed to be experienced from several vantage points: from above—walking amidst a dense landscape of indigenous vegetation intertwined with protuberant forms that emit water, air or light; from below—as a suspended ceiling system that pulls down to close proximity with the floor; or from within—in the interior of the auditorium space and specialized laboratory areas designed for the cultivation of vegetation in semi climatically-controlled microclimates.
