It is one of the best and most intense films I have seen this year. It is a solo performance by Tom Hardy, perhaps the best young actor today. Over the space of 80 minutes, Ivan Locke's life has a complete change through a series of phone calls he receives while driving down the highway to London to face an important mistake he made. On the brink of the most important day of his career as an architect/engineer, he faces a personal decision that would cost him everything. A must see film directed by Steven Knight.

Gabriel Esquivel was born and educated as an architect in Mexico City with a degree from the National University and a Master’s Degree in Architecture from The Ohio State University.
My research oscillates between fabrication techniques, and parametric investigations directly linked to the fabricated pieces; the theoretical background behind these fabricated objects mainly focusing on automation and sensation. These are being discussed on papers from Acadia from the parametric point of view as well as theory-based publications like Thresholds from MIT.
My challenge is to develop methods of design intelligence through the application of fabrication, focusing on integrating new techniques, materials and sensation. My recent interest relies on Object Oriented Ontology as well as the re-application of craft.
