Programme: Architecture - PhD/MPhil/MSc by Research

Start date: October 2015

Mode of study: Full time

Research title: Zero Energy Mass Custom Homes (ZEMCH)

Pablo is currently studying for a PhD at Edinburgh School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture (ESALA) at Edinburgh College of Art, The University of Edinburgh. He has an MArch from The Mackintosh School of Architecture, Glasgow School of Art (GSA) specialising in Zero Energy Mass Custom Homes (ZEMCH) and is an active member of the international ZEMCH Network. With practice in Mexico and in Scotland, his work varies from architectural design to research and construction.

Pablo is currently chairing the Postgraduate Seminar Series PROKALO and tutoring in the course of Technology and Environment II and Architecture and Sustainability (Distance Learning) (delivered by University of Edinburgh and Heriot-Watt University).

His research focuses on energy-efficient housing and its relation to industrialised manufacturing, specifically about mass-customisation. His current project is 'Zero Energy Mass Custom houses' (ZEMCH). Pablo is analysing the beneficial relationship between energy efficiency and mass customisation by observing the Japanese context, where this concept is used in practice, and understanding its applicability in other contexts.
