I am a NYS Registered Architect, currently building a music studio in Brooklyn and planning the next gallery space for a traveling exhibition and proposed sculpture park for one of my clients. I also provide consulting services for a few small NYC firms.
I graduated in 2003 with distinction from the University of Chile after spending my 5th year in Bordeaux, France, where I researched waterfront redevelopment trends in Europe and North America. My thesis proposed to rezone a shipping container storage area on Valparaiso's waterfront into recreational use by incorporating the adaptive reuse of abandoned historic train repair buildings and a master plan for leisure. This project later became reference material for students and city planners alike.
Upon graduation, I obtained an Architect's license to practice in Chile and worked in several offices in large infrastructure and retail projects, until relocating to New York City to work at a small local firm designing and building several awarded RFPs for new residential developments in the city.
Eventually, I became interested in green buildings and sustainability, graduating in 2009 from the master's program in urban design from The City College of New York. In January 2013 I became an RA.
