Hi, my name is Clara Catoggio. I’m an architectural designer born and raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where received got my architectural degree. Currently, I live in Los Angeles, CA.

Architecture is my passion, and I consider myself a designer first.  I’m mostly interested in the architecture that implements design technologies to create spaces that embrace and harvest education, healthcare, environmental issues, and social relationships.  As a creative and hardworking person, I'm always in constant pursuit of knowledge. And so, I seek involvement in an enriched workspace where I can learn more about these aspects and develop as a well-rounded professional. I believe great design comes from collaboration and teamwork, and I consider myself a flexible individual who can be part of a team, lead, and work independently.

In my free time, I’m investigating and learning about parametric and biomimetic design.  I’ve always been interested in biology and been amazed by nature’s design. I always thought most of the solutions to our design problems lie there, and the fact that there is a branch of knowledge that is dedicated to this motivates my passion for design and architecture even more.
