About 

I’m a graduate student of the Master in Architecture and Urban Design program at Columbia University.

My professional experienced is based on diverse range of projects,  from city planning projects (PLADES Frutillar), economic reliability evaluations (Investment Funds), design proposals for new developments (Lo Recabarren), to the organization of a public architectural competition (Parque Museo Humano). Each one of these projects demanded adaptation to different clients, products and strategies.

As a project manager at Urbana E&D, I saw this as an opportunity to motivate my team with the purpose to generate commitment, enthusiasm and enjoyment at the work. In my recent work at the GSAPP, I’ve had the opportunity to take advantage of the freedom to experiment and the diversity of the students’ backgrounds to explore and innovate with unconventional projects.

Lyon Bosch Architectural and Landscape Design, Santiago, CL, Architect

As an architect in Lyon Bosch I was in charge of the development of several architecture projects under parametric concepts. Each one of them was developed under a logic of simple operation that can solve specific requirements in each project. This idea was focused on the efficiency in construction, and operation of the projects using local and passive technology.
