Rodolfo was born in Caracas where he studied architecture and urban planning at the Universidad Central de Venezuela (UCV). In 2009 he graduated with a Master of Advanced Architecture from the Institute for advanced architecture of Catalonia (Iaac). The usage of digital fabrication tools along his professional trajectory and a multi-scalar approach to architecture and design characterize his work. These career moves motivated the architect to run the FabLab Luxembourg, located in the Technoport of Belval since 2013.
