Gabriela Maria Lopez Galan

Santiago, CL



I am an architect with experience in architecture firms, who is an enthusiastic and creative team member.
I have provided professional services at all phases of design and construction. My responsibilities have included design and developing programs, providing schematic design options, specifying products and finishes, and preparing drawings for presentation, permit, bid and construction. Having worked on small and mid-size projects, I have enjoyed the opportunity to see my designs materialize, and learn about the construction. 
I am a native Spanish speaker who is fluent in English. In addition to the work I have done in the U.S. I have completed independent projects in my home country of Argentina, where I had to respond to different cultural, social and environmental realities. I feel that creating Architecture in two different countries has not only expanded my knowledge of construction techniques, but has also enriched my perception of the field.
I am looking for a new challenge in my career and I would be excited to work on larger and more diverse projects.



I am currently participating in the PJM area in Santiago. Providing architectural knowledge and developing in all phases of habilitation, coordination, development and construction of corporate offices.
