DIEGO LUZURIAGA c/ Canet 2, 2º-2ª 08017 Barcelona Spain 0034 / 619860751 diego.luzuriaga@gmail.com

Dear Sr, I am an architect with +7 years of expertise in all phases of the design process. I am a very motivated and creative person and I am looking for a new challenge in a design-led practice. I have highly developed skills in building design, project scheduling and team leadership ability to prioritize and perform multiple tasks, and also have discipline and confidence in a complex international environment.

I worked for the past six years in MYAA Architects, Barcelona’s branch, with extensive project management experience on large-scale projects from concept design through construction document for international competitions and developing residential projects as a Project Design Architect.

I have excellent design skills and I am proficient in advanced knowledge of 3D Max, Vray, Rhino 4, Auto CAD and Adobe Suite.

Looking forward to hearing from you to discuss my application and how I can significantly contribute to the ongoing success of your office.

Sincerely Yours Diego Luzuriaga
