Who is jaime rouillon

Jaime Rouillon chose to live in Costa Rica to develop as professional, after practice and postgraduate studies. In 1994, he founded Jaime Rouillon Architecture, in response to the concern to experiment and explore the issue of rehabilitation of structures in disuse, in attachment to the context of both the site and the urban layout.

Its formation is somewhat hybrid, because it was Costa Rican and Peruvian. After completing his degree studies in architecture, he works for recognized architectural studios in Lima, as Baracco and Soyer. In 1986, he attended the University of Pennsylvania Architecture School for a graduate degree. In 1989, returns to his Peruvian roots with experience in Miami working on international projects and contests with Architectural International. He returns to Costa Rica with the desire to "find a free and spontaneous architecture based on experimentation with different materials."

Jaime Rouillon tries to mix into a coherent whole, tropical color and depth, formal fragmentation and the lack of traditions within the Costa Rican environment with the memory of his native desert of Peru, its diffuse light without depth, its cultural and physical context, the introverted and solid architecture with the international architecture of postmodernism, his fascination with the sensuality of forms, materials and textures in both interior and exterior, achieving a juxtaposition of feelings of the contemporary society.

Jaime’s architecture is full of surprises, he is more interested in the interior than the exterior. Each project is different from the other, search of materials and customer needs. There is no apparent formal connection between projects, rather it is the result of a design workshop led by Jaime, who works closely with the architects of the studio to develop proposals with its own identity.

There is no architecture without the light as opposed of shadow. It is the contrast where Jaime finds the vital tension for the development of each project. The performance and use of energy consumption in the design must be consider since the beginning of the initial sketch of any project which is subjected to high performance tests in Boston, under the direction of Phd.
