I am a Spanish architect who recently graduated from the University of Granada. Through several scholarships I've had the opportunity to study and work in France, Catalunya, Brazil, Mexico and USA.
These experiences have made me more aware of the global challenges modern cities are facing and how a responsible and sustainable architecture can help improve people's quality of life.
