About 

I am Michelle Chedraui, a curious mind that enjoys the thoughtful architectural details and the spaces that make me feel infinitely vulnerable. As a designer, I believe that integrating inspiration from the urban fabric and the culture that it belongs to makes a design vitalizing. I enjoy the process of translating a concept while humanizing spaces to allow the public realm to experience the ‘experience;’ as a response to the backbone of the problem.
