About 

Graduated from the University of Granada and the Technical University of Munich with a Master’s degree in Architecture Design and Engineering, my education covers every fundamental aspect of Architectural Design, ranging from Urban Planning to Structural Analysis, Construction Detailing or Sustainable Design. I am currently enrolled on Master studies of BIM Management at the University of Barcelona.

Alongside architecture, and as a fully formed musician, I am passionate about culture, arts and other fields of design. In every discipline, I extensively trained the ability to work in a group and under pressure and developed strong critical and analytical skills. 

Constantly eager to learn, I have broadened my studies with scenography, photography, film or graphic design courses, and workshops in London, Boston, Paris, Zurich or Madrid. This has granted me a wide view of the design process and the possibility of improving my language skills in English, German and French.

arc2lab architecture, Munich, DE, Architect

In arc2lab, a Munich-based office specialized in laboratory, research and healthcare buildings, I had the chance to obtain a thorough understanding of the functional and technical complexity of these typologies, as well as to develop own conceptual designs, working in countries as Germany, Austria, Italy, Colombia, United Arab Emirates or Oman. The implementation of BIM methodologies in the office stirred up my interest in this field, which I continued studying.
