3rd-year Architecture and Urban Planning Student: Victor is an undergraduate student from Universidade Federal de Viçosa in Brazil, and he always designs with a focus on functionality, aesthetics, and sustainability. Since he was a child, Victor always had an interest in building things and changing spaces. When his older brother was admitted to a course of Architecture and showed Victor the world of architecture, he decided to study Architecture and Urban Planning, too. In college, Victor discovered his passion for 3D modeling and technical drawings. He recognized that making people understand and visualize the project idea is as important as designing it and developed a wide variety of software knowledge including Revit, AutoCAD, 3DsMax, Illustrator, and Photoshop. Victor also enjoys working groups, and in Viçosa he once lived with three other architecture students, which contributed to his development and experience through collaborative exchange and suggestions on the projects everyone was working on. Coming from a big city in Brazil, Victor became interested in sustainability when he saw people wasting natural resources and clearing forests. Victor believes that in order to improve the quality of life man needs nature and must take care of it. He brings this belief and his passion for design and visualization to the design team working on the 7 Sustainable Village Models.
