Hello, my name is Alvaro Velosa. I am a masters of architecture 2014 candidate at Parsons in New York City.
I am interested in metropolitan architecture with specific interest in the near future of deindustrializing cities.
On my spare time I enjoy listening to, playing, and collecting music. I also like to spend time exploring the city and the outdoors on my bike, feet, or skateboard.
