Personal Introduction

My name is Ivan Laguna. I am a young ambitious professional that grew up in Los Angeles, California. I am of American-Mexican decent. I am fascinated with experiencing different cultures and interested in how cities develop due to social and economical influences. I have studied in Beijing, Shanghai, Nanjing in China and in Berlin, Germany. Those experiences have expanded my view at how spaces can be shaped and experienced with the influenced of Architecture and design.
