My name is Mariano and I'm from Spain. I'm Mechanical Engineer and I'm currently working in a Technological consultant company called ALTRAN. I usually work in Structural Design Projects for differents industries: aeronautical, railways, industrial, scientific instrumentation,... I also have experience in Structural Stress Projects.
I've worked a few weeks ago for the first time with the NKA project in the design of a low-tech formwork, and I'd like to keep on working in this project. I don't have much experience in process and architectural layouts, but I think I could contribute with my knowledge in Structural Mechanical Design and the use of CAD systems to generate 3D model, drawings and BOMs.

I'm an architect from Australia who has for the past 2 years traveled around while working remotely for a Sydney architecture & construction firm. I graduated in 2008, and I am currently undertaking my post-grad, also remotely, through RMIT University. Right now I am based in Berlin but plan to move to Athens soon.
I look forward to working with you on this project. I just wanted to clarify, are we meant to collaborate on one design or submit our own design proposals? The instructions are a little unclear.
