About 

Mexican architect graduated in 2012 from Universidad Iberoamericana, Mexico City. Currently, she is based in New York as a 2020 graduate from the Masters of Science in Historic Preservation from the Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation at Columbia University. 

Along with her professional career, Mariana’s practice has focused on rethinking the evolution of the built environment. Through an integrated education, she has aimed to develop a deep understanding of the emplacement, history, culture, and traditions of a site as a way to conceive proposals that can become part of a society and to engage its inhabitants. Her experience includes collaborating in architectural studios in Mexico City and New York, being involved in a wide variety of projects that have delved into research, architectural and exhibition design, and construction supervision.

Her interests are currently expanding the use of heritage as a crucial component of contemporary contexts by including historical research as part of a professional methodology. Through her work, she expects to intersect preservation analysis and theory with design practices on multiple scales to demonstrate that heritage can be approached from diverse perspectives as a tool that tackles multiple issues.
