 I am Macarena Chaves, an architecture and Urbanism graduate from ETSAM (Polytechnic University of Madrid). Completed a Master in Architecture last July.

Although I have never had the opportunity to work in a large studio, I have worked at a small firm in Chicago. That experience brought me a greater understanding of how the architectural world works. During that period, I was in charge of several tasks, being given significant responsibility in a wide variety of projects. I could deal with real deadlines, stressful moments and collaborate with co-workers in group projects, among many others. Regarding, specific projects, I was involved in the rehabilitation of a restaurant and residential and retail projects.
