Educational background

Completely passionate for architecture as a way of life instead of a discipline, committed to an integral professional vision and constantly seeking for innovation. I strongly believe that excellence should be the ideal and the only way to get things done is by giving the best of yourself. I am always looking forward to challenges that allow me to grow and develop my potential to the fullest both as a professional and as a person. Architect Cum Laude

New Urban Fabric / Eco-Industrial Caracas year place

march - december 2017 Graduation project Caracas, Venezuela

The proposal conceives a new role for urban industry, seeking innovative solutions through operations to achieve urban fabric regeneration. The objective is to achieve the consolidation of a much denser, mixed, complex and dynamic environment of the inactive industrial areas of Caracas. Therefore, in the project works in multiple scales centered primarily on achieving a more self-sustainable city through local industrial production. To do so, the proposal is structured in three scales of intervention: The first one establishes the Eco-Industrial Caracas Net, the second one intervenes an existing industrial area in Los Cortijos, and the third one sets up a new mixed urban industry typology.

Marketplace / Restaurant & Bar year place

april - july 2016 13th term Caracas, Venezuela

The idea is to revitalize an abandoned area next to an existing supermarket in Santa Paula, an urbanization in Caracas. The aim of the exercise was to use a flexible / detachable structure to create a low scale / high impact building. The new project is conceived as a space that flows and integrates inside and outside, with no divisions, creating a multi-functional space that supports an itinerant market that places there three it days a week, but also hosts a Restaurant / Bar. This idea is achieved by using a light roof, a permeable skin surrounding the building and multi-purpose furniture that is able to adapt to both functions.

Urban Proposal / Collective Housing year place

Neighborhood Uses


january - march 2016 12th term Caracas, Venezuela

The competition is part of The United Nations Conference on Housing and Sustainable Urban Development (Habitat 3) and its aim was to design a multi-scale proposal for a city in Latin-America, thinking of new ways of living. Based on that, the proposal is located in an abandoned industrial area in Caracas, and it’s focused in a socioeconomic study of the Latin-American and Venezuelan family, offering new urban and domestic experiences, understanding the needs of new types of families as well as the increasing growth of the city. The new urban development reuses pre-existing structures and proposes progressive-growth housing as well as a mixture of uses resulting in a much more dynamic and active area.

Las Mercedes Cultural and Civic Center year place

january - march 2016 12th term Caracas, Venezuela

The main idea for the project is to restore and expand the current CADA Shopping Center, an iconic 50's building in Las Mercedes. The proposal is conceived as an ode to the modern heritage of the city. The idea is to preserve the outstanding elements of the structure articulating it with two new buildings through public space. The existing one is intervened to become the main gallery, and the others host a library, an auditorium and a City Hall. The proposal has dynamic and changing spatial sequences, allowing an inside - outside integration through the use of transparency.
