Edgar Duran D'Gyves

New York, NY, US



I am currently enrolled in Parsons the New School for Design pursuing a BFA in Architecture. My varied interests in design are what brought me to pursue a degree in a design school in New York City. Now having lived in many different places, I have become highly adaptable to different cultures and traditions. These different experiences have shaped my critical thinking and perception about design over the years. The structure of architectural theory has helped me analyze other forms of design in a different way. This idea has guided my interests and perception in the field of design. Using my knowledge and background, together with this principle, I continue to explore the creation of these experiences, as we live them today.
