Jose Francisco Salinas ”Sere” (linkedin) has a degree in Architecture as well as in Telecommunications Engineering from the ESAyA and Polytechnic School (AID) of the European University of Madrid. Expert in the digital development of architecture through parametric design systems, use of new materials and technologies in architecture, as he has more than 10 years of experience in the world of digital fabrication applied to architecture and design. Also Jose Francisco Salinas, is together with Roque Peña, founding partner of EXarchitects, since 2013.

Therefore, one of these convergence paths is found in digital fabrication techniques, parametric project development and the investigation of new types of materiality in architecture and design.
