New York, NY, US



I am an architect with 3 years of experience currently working at Durukan Design. I graduated from Columbia University in 2013 completing the post-professional Masters in Advanced Architectural Design and I graduated in Architecture in 2011 (ETSAB, UPC, Barcelona).

Regarding my professional development, working in NYC has refined my design skills, improved my project management capabilities and extended my technical knowledge. I have worked on all building phases and in urban planning, architectural and interior design projects. From my previous experience in Spain, I would like to highlight that I worked in two projects awarded with the First Prize in a National Competition. // Spain & USA citizenship
