Brooklyn, NY, US




My name is Silvia and I am a recent graduate of the Master of Architecture program at Parsons School of Design. I am really looking forward to gaining experience in my field and trying to move forward in completing my license requirements for both my architect license and engineering license (in structural design). I am very passionate about biophilic architecture, healthy materials, and adaptive reuse. 



Parsons School of Design, New York, NY, US, MArch, Architecture

Very heavily research and theory based with a strong push towards sustainable design and consideration of the surrounding environments. For my thesis I focused on biophilic design and the way that Architecture affects the space it inhabits and those who inhabit the space.

The Catholic University of America, Washington, DC, US, BArch, Dual Major in Civil Engineering and Architecture

After five years of hard work I came out with two degrees in Civil Engineering and Architecture while also minoring in Philosophy. The architectural studies were heavily focused in technical drawings, modeling, and renderings. The engineering studies limited design work to the last year and were very focused on calculations and general understanding of the discipline.
