Mateo Deza is an architectural designer who just finished his graduate studies as a M.Arch I Student at the Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc) in Los Angeles.

After obtaining his BA(Hons.) at the University of Liverpool, he worked as an ARB/RIBA  Part 1 Architectural Assistant at PRP Architects in Manchester, UK, and attended the Architectural Association in London for a year.
