In my own words "We strongly believe we as architects and designers have the responsibility to use creativity and our technical skills to improve the quality of people's life in the present and in the future, we will keep on working in this direction..."
I'm passionate on how paying attention to existing natural systems/cycles can open new possibilities. A scholarship recipient for the MAA01 Master in Advanced Architecture program at the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia (IaaC), in Barcelona. I graduated as an architect from Monterrey Institute of Technology and was an intern at Shigeru Ban Architects in Tokyo. Between 2007-2009 I worked at Norman Foster and Partners in London, where I was exposed to different scales and types of projects worldwide where sustainability played a major role.
