Marián Paredes

New York, NY, US



I am an architect from Spain, with an European academic background, and more than 7 years of international experience throughout various countries in Europe and United States of America.

After completing my Bachelor´s degree in Architecture I earned a specialized Master´s in Urbanism and Environment in Spain. I am a licensed architect, registered in the Spanish Institute of Architects. I have professional experience in Spain, Ireland and Italy, and currently I am working in New York City. I have a great ability to adapt to new places and situations, as well as a sensibility to understand the context where I am working in.

In my professional career I have been involved in a broad array of architectural projects of different scales and types: institutional, commercial, residential and hospitality. I usually work in all phases of the project, from the design through the construction documents. Furthermore, I also have hands-on experience working in urbanism, what gives me the capacity to understand each project from another perspective.

Beyond my hand-drawing aptitudes, during all these years I have acquired an extensive knowledge and experience with graphic software. I am a highly motivated and very well organized person, independent thinker and team player. I consider every project an opportunity to do my best, ensuring the highest quality while meeting deadlines.
