About 

As an architectural designer, I find myself passionate in exploring how the environments we create become catalysts for social engagement. It is important for me to understand and respect the relationships between people and the physical world.  Therefore it is my intention to treat every intervention with the utmost attention and sensibility possible.

I am a recent graduate of Columbia University’s Advanced Architectural Design program who is actively seeking the opportunity of professional growth in an inclusive work environment; one that is focused on the sensibility and production of design / construction but also driven by collaboration and creativity. 

If you feel that I would be a strong addition to your team, please feel free to contact me at Delgado.jmichael@gmail.com
