I am Pablo Osorio, and I enclose a brief background statement.
I graduate with a Bachelor of Architecture in 2007 from Cal Poly Pomona. In 2012 I graduate with a post professional degree from the Southern California Institute of Architecture. I receive a Master of Design Research Studies focused in new technologies and material for the implementation in architecture and construction.
Professionally, I make an effort to keep a continuous dialogue with the design team developing sound theoretical premises to support the design processes. Many of the projects I work on are exhibited, or some projects are winning design proposals. They demonstrate architectural and environmental sensibility, creative attentiveness, and my effort to gradually improve our quality of life. I apply these ideas to my work complementing them with extensive research. Thus, my work is recognized for having thorough design processes achieving a good understanding of their occupants’ needs, their sociopolitical conditions, and their surrounding environment.
I have worked for small and large structural engineering and architecture offices. I am involved in most stages of the construction process. It includes structural detailing, cost estimating, and project management.
After receiving my professional degree from Cal Poly Pomona, I work for Skidmore, Owings & Merrill. Subsequently, I work for Quatro Design Group Architects in Los Angeles, California. In both offices, I am part of the design team. Accordingly, I am involved in large and medium size projects in California, Nevada and China. They include hotel buildings, mixed-use high-rise towers, and design-built project competitions for college campuses. The design process explores methods of solving aesthetic, theoretical and technical problems unique to each building; as a result, I acquire a wide-ranging knowledge expanding my design, practical and technological abilities. Regularly, I approach my profession meticulously, and it is evident in my problem solving methods, research, and design processes. In sum, my education, work experience, and passion for architecture make me a capable, perceptive and creative design professional.
Roger Sherman Architecture and Urban Design, Venice, CA, US, PROJECT ARCHITECT
I am in charge of overseeing, coordinating and aiding the overall design of two projects. Our design approach is expected to be highly creative and innovative. The team's task is to research new technologies and to propose creative design ideas back to our clients. Feasibility studies and circulation studies are part of our work. Our Team along with engineers and design constants help resolve some of the technical problems.

I am part of the design team working on hospitality and mixed-use towers projects in the US and China. Most projects are massive structures with large programs. My involvement deals with designing the overall project and its smaller scale interior elements. In fact, I work on public and private spaces as well as custom furniture and its hardware. Additionally, I produce photo realistic 3D renderings for all projects assigned to me as part of the design process. I coordinate information with consultants and manufactures. Also, I work on presentation boards, design development drawings and construction documents.

REBAR & MORE, Chino, CA, US, REINFORCING STEEL PROJECT DETAILER
Under the direction of a civil engineer, I produce shop drawings including plans, elevations, and sections for the manufacturing and placing of reinforcing steel bars (rebar). These plans are to be used in conjunction with structural and architectural drawings. Some projects include power plants, parking structures, schools, and hotels. Also I help estimating these jobs.
Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc), Los Angeles, CA, US, Masters, MASTER OF DESIGN RESEARCH STUDIES
SCI-Arc's Emerging Systems, Technologies & Media post-professional program, leading to the award of a Master of Design Research in Emerging Systems and Technologies|Media (M.DesR/ESTm), is a rigorous, experimental post-professional degree program focused on data-based and physical investigations into the rapidly evolving fields of digital design, innovative fabrication methodologies and new building systems. The program is positioned as a leading center for advanced research into emerging materials, robotics and sustainable engineering.
Focused on the status of architectural design within the context of rapidly evolving digital design, fabrication, and material technologies, the ESTm program cultivates live prototyping, original scholarship, and design investigations. Operating as an innovation center and design research laboratory, the ESTm program works in partnership with a wide range of industry and institutional leaders.
California State Polytechnic University, Pomona, Pomona, CA, US, BArch, Bachelor of Architecture
The Bachelor of Architecture degree is offered in a five-year curriculum, which focuses on the design laboratory. The studio sequence consists of four segments: a three-year basic core, a four quarter group of topic studios taken jointly by fourth and fifth year students, a fourth year urban design studio and a culminating senior project. Lecture classes in Architecture Theory and History, Human Behavior, Programming, Sustainability, Building Technology, Structures, Codes and Digital Media are closely coordinated with the studio sequence, and students are expected to demonstrate their knowledge of these areas in their design projects.
Shortlisted Project, Other
2011 - This winter, we announced a design competition in conjunction with DuPont™, The Union of Russian Architects, YEM, and Karo Film: a brief to re-think Moscow's classic Pushinsky Cinema, a local landmark and prototype for all post-war performance halls in Russia. Marred by years of neglect, the cinema is a focal point in resurgence of design in the city.
DLF Lesley Wheel Memorial Scholarship award, 2nd Place
The Lesley Wheel Memorial Scholarship encourages students to pursue a career in lighting with a better understanding of how to manipulate light. Students must design and build a functioning fixture that meets a loose set of criteria. Fixtures are then judged on aesthetics, performance, and clarity of concept.
Jean Roth Driskel Scholarship Award, 1st Place
The JRD scholarships are annually awarded to two students: one a local Community College student and one a local University student in recognition of their dedication, enthusiasm and ability in the field of architecture. Nominated by their schools, the Community College student candidate must have been accepted to an NAAB accredited program for a first professional architectural degree. The university student candidate must be in their penultimate year of an NAAB accredited program for a first professional architectural degree.
