Tom F. Caminha, Architect, CAU/RJ
Tom is a Brazilian licensed Architect, registered with the Architecture and Urbanism Council of Rio de Janeiro. Having worked since 2007 at several architectural design and construction management firms, both in Brazil and in Canada, he has experience with many different building scales and typologies. From furniture and interior design, through single-family houses to residential high-rises, hotels and social housing complexes; from schools, to museums, to parks and medium scale urban design.
Tom has also been involved in academia since his undergraduate days and is currently a professor at the Serra dos Órgãos University´s architecture and urbanism program (UNIFESO).
Throughout the years, Tom has come to understand architectural design as a dialectic process at the junction between artistic and scientific thought. In its several (and sometimes conflicting) needs, aspirations, potentialities and limitations are analyzed and managed in search of a harmonious solution to a given set of problems.
