Meet Our Team
A collective of artists, designers, architects, filmmakers and digital disruptors.
Mel has six years of architectural experience in practice, working to deliver and project manage both largescale commercial and innovative institutional design projects. Shortly after graduating, Mel commenced work within the emergent architectural practice of Studio Roland Snooks, as well as developed her continued interest in academia and research through teaching alongside practice.
Mel has a keen interest in performative architecture, fueled by both scenographic strategies and novel technologies and methodologies. She is interested in both theoretical and speculative inquiry, as well as exploring the potential of fabricating and built work. Her academic research involves using computational crafting techniques such as spatial compositing, surface articulation and the visceral in order to compose spatial conditions rich in affectual atmospheres.
Mel currently works for Fologram, and teaches at both RMIT University and the University of Melbourne.
Sean Guy is an algorithmic designer with a wealth of knowledge and experience stemming from architectural practice. Sean holds both a Bachelor of Architectural Design and a Master of Architecture from RMIT University. During Sean’s studies at RMIT, he was the recipient of the ARM prize in 2016, and the Award for Design Excellence in the Master of Architecture program at RMIT University.
Sean has worked in architectural practice since 2012, and during this period has worked on a number of high profile and innovative design practice projects both locally and internationally. In particular, the projects he has been involved in have not only been innovative in their design, but have also been highly innovative in their delivery.
Sean has a keen interest in innovative fabrication methodologies and their ability to enable intricate, highresolution mass customized architectural systems. Sean has extensive experience and knowledge in robotic fabrication methods, large scale 3D-Printing and augmented reality assemblies.
Sean currently works for Fologram, and teaches at both Monash University and the University of Melbourne. Sean also curates the design practice ‘The Different Design’.
Antoine first studied architecture in Lausanne before moving to London to join the Architectural Association, where he graduated with Honours in 2013. During his studies he has worked in several of offices in Zurich, London and Brussels. After graduating Antoine moved to Tokyo and Mexico City, where he respectively worked two and one years.
Álvaro has directed and produced Sol mihi semper Lucet (16’, 2015), a short film intimately exploring the colossal West Texan landscapes which was selected for the 2015 Play Doc Film Festival, L’Aternativa Festival de Cine Independiente de Barcelona, Porto / Post Doc, Curtocircuito and Alcances Film Festival in Cadiz.
His film Nocturno: Ghosts of the Sea in Port (72’, 2017), produced by A Cuarta Parede Films, premiered at the FICX in Gijón and was the Official Selection for Documentaries at the Edinburgh International Film Festival this year.
Álvaro pushes the boundaries of filmmaking and is currently working on new large format project between the Colombia-Venezuela border.
Andréa received her masters in architecture from Université de Montréal in 2013. In 2015, she completed a post-graduate degree in Moscow in Hybrid Urbanism at Strelka Institute for Media, Architecture and Design, where she then worked as a researcher and hybrid urbanist. Andréa also worked for several years as a design strategist for The Commons Inc, an architectural think tank and strategic design consultancy firm in Montreal where she co-authored The Civic Assets Atlas, a major research on cities’ civic assets. She is now helping build Manoeuvres, the first think tank for public space in Montreal, where she is planning a new kind of collaborative “Manifesto for public space”.
Andréa is the recipient of numerous honors, including the AIA Henry Adams Medal from The American Institute of Architects and The Royal Architectural Institute of Canada Student Medal from The Royal Architectural Institute of Canada and the Emerging Architect Grant by the Conseil des Arts et des Lettres du Québec. Her project Google Urbanism, which investigates a new licensing platform in the attention economy was awarded ‘Word changing ideas” by FastCo magazine.
