In general, architecture deals with problems of all kinds by finding alternative strategies to solve these problems. Thus, Julia’s initiative consists in improving the environment through architecture, specifically the use of intelligent materials in construction, interactive materials that respond to changes in the environment such as: solar radiation, temperature change, air purification from CO2, mechanical forces, energy production electrical etc. Awareness of improving the quality of the environment, air and energy conservation, as an intermediary role for the protection of the earth, is never enough for society.

Julia has chosen to do this through an online platform where she shares information and explanatory materials about smart materials and their benefits. You can familiarize yourself with Julia’s platform by clicking here.
