My name is Sebastian Correa; I’m a young Chilean Architect with more than 7 years of experience in different fields related with architecture and construction, always very interested in take on new challenges and self set new goals.

I’m currently based on Shanghai-China working for VIRTUARCH studio since 2014 expanding my architecture skills involved in the development of several projects in different phases and improving my aptitudes in urbanism and architecture photography.

I’m very interested in the interaction between people/city/and the buildings that we are designed as an architects and how these designs can affect the behavior of society and determinate the growth and the cities of the future.

I learned a lot professionally and personally, improved my languages and also my capacity to work in a team and managing projects individually.


Best Regards.
