About 

I have been studying for a Bachelor’s Degree in Fundamentals of Architecture at the Polytechnical University of Madrid. This has included a semester exchange at the Polytechnical University of Catalonia in Barcelona, a full year exchange at the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago and a semester exchange at Tongji University in Shanghai. Aswell having worked in HOK offices in San Francisco during 6 months parcitipating in a wide variety of proyects like Healthcare, Commercial, Justice and Aviation and Transportation. These exchanges have given me an intense insight into these worlds and have provided me with technical tools that I aim to merge with my understanding of architecture as a powerful social tool.
