Kevin Gonzalez Mojica is a first-generation student, born in Georgia, USA, and raised in Guerrero, Mexico. Born from immigrant parents who fled from Mexico's ongoing struggles, he has since spent most of his life in South Florida in the small coastal town of Fort Pierce, where he attended middle and high-school. In his efforts to address disparaged lower-income housing from personal experience, Kevin has focused on research into the fields of social/public/affordable housing and climate resiliency in regards to both architectural and socio-cultural improvements. His upbringing in poorly constructed mobile-homes in the extreme Florida climate has lead to a focus on more sustainable methods of design, to ensure a more promising future in the built environment and an equitable opportunity to a healthy lifestyle for impoverished communities.

Currently a Masters in Architecture Candidate at Washington University in St. Louis, into his first semester at Washington University in St. Louis, he has also been designated as one of 10 “Sam Fox Graduate Ambassador + Fellow” in the Sam Fox School from 2020-2022. His expected graduation date is May 2022.

In addition, he has received two Bachelor's Degrees from the University of Florida, in May 2020. A Bachelors of Design with a Major in Architecture and a Bachelors of Science in Sustainability & the Built Environment. In his undergraduate studies he has focused in the fields of climate resilience, affordable housing, pre-fabricated housing, and sustainable construction materials/techniques.

This summer of 2021, Kevin will be joining the international design firm Gensler for a Summer Fellowship program to focus on the rising issues of climate change, social injustice, and sustainability.
