Santander, ES



A highly motivated, hard working architect with good initiative and very responsible.
I am also trustful and open-minded and used to work efficiently in team and
independently, and to manage meetings with colleagues from different fields.
I distinguish myself having started as an intern in BIG - Bjarke Ingels Group’s
Copenhagen office in February 2010 and quickly attaining the level of an Architect
before completing my tenure in September 2011.
Besides my professional experience I have been developing various independent
projects, which have been shown at Cité de l’Architecture et du Patrimoine in Paris
2011, Venice Biennale 2010 and Colegio Arquitectos Madrid 2009 among others.

New Urban Worms, a new nomadic residential form which is, literally, planted on existing facades, is a largescale urban interpretation of the Rucksack House of the German sculptor Stefan Eberstadt. Every city is engaged in a search for innovative solutions to the shortage of building land which raises issues of urban identity and aesthetics. Thus - while located in Madrid- This project is aimed at all metropolises.
