Gadiel A. Marquez is a Los Angeles based architectural and graphic designer. Originally from Florida, he received a Masters of Architecture from The University of South Florida, where he was awarded best thesis for his work – Architectural Paroidia: The Meta-Spatiality of the Don, Literary Madness – a series of Meta architectural interventions based on the world renowned Spanish novel, Don Quixote. His interest lies in examining styles, cultural fads, and popular ideologies to explore reimagined futures: where Architecture is expressed as an inhabitable art, shaping and molding society into a more design-conscious whole. Through architectural and graphic design, Gadiel continues to push his understanding of the design profession; and as an associate at UAL, he is committed to elevating the typology of Mixed-use and Multi-family to both new and unexplored horizons. 

Outside of studio, Gadiel volunteers at The Architecture + Design Museum as a graphic designer and museum staff member, where he’s actively been a part of the Architectural Imagination and Museum of Failure exhibits. Moreover, he has recently become involved with the Downtown Los Angeles Planning and Land Use Committee in hope of impacting, and laying a foundation for a more progressive and urban environment in Los Angeles.
