Introduction With an experience of nearly 20 years collaborating in leading design studios in the United Kingdom and Mexico, developing projects in Europe, Asia and the Americas, my aim is to deliver innovative, unique and sustainable projects to provide our clients with added value to their investment. To achieve these objectives, we offer a comprehensive design consultancy and professional support network in Mexico and other locations. Team As an architect and designer, I believe that high-quality projects can only be achieved through close collaboration. My experience, working with multi-disciplinary international and local teams, has led to a strong belief that teamwork is the key to shared success. This involves the close participation of clients, consultants and colleagues to achieve the common goals and objectives. My professional experience in the United Kingdom and Mexico and participation in complex international projects has allowed me to better understand the needs of individuals and organisations in order to adapt the workplan and common objectives accordingly. The best approach to problem-solving is that of an effective and integrated collaboration where all participants contribute to a solution. Selected Projects Since qualification as an architect in 1998 in Mexico and in the United Kingdom in 2006, I have had the opportunity to collaborate at some of the leading design studios in both countries, participating on a wide range of projects. This has allowed me to further develop professional skills to undertake the challenges ahead and work on projects that can improve the lives of people and the conditions of our built environment. For nearly a decade, my collaboration at Foster + Partners, one of most innovative design practices in the world, has provided me with a vision for excellence in design, organisational skills, international team collaboration and sustainability. My participation in various project typologies such as office, residential, mixed-use, hospitality and infrastructure projects, has contributed to the continuous development of my professional skills and experience. Research and Development Since early age, I had a strong interest in the complexity of natural systems, the rapid developments in technology and the importance of good design. This led to explore new boundaries during postgraduate studies and research at the Bartlett School of Architecture, University College London. During this period, I was able explore my ideas on adaptive architecture which I aim to develop further into applications with a positive impact on the way buildings are designed, built and inhabited. UCL’s world-class academic programme (ranked as one of the best schools of architecture in the world in 2015) and the open interaction with colleagues, academics and professionals from over the world, allowed me to further develop a new approach to architecture. I believe that these ideas, published and awarded at international competitions, can be the next step on architectural design.

Introducción Con una experiencia de cerca de 20 años colaborando en estudios de diseño en el Reino Unido y México, desarrollando proyectos en Europa, Asia y las Américas, mi objetivo es realizar proyectos innovadores, únicos y sustentables para proporcionar a nuestros clientes con un valor agregado para su inversión. Para lograr estos objetivos, ofrecemos una amplia consultoría de diseño y red de soporte profesional en Mexico y otras ubicaciones. Equipo Como arquitecto y diseñador, creo que los proyectos de alta calidad solo se pueden lograr a través de una cercana colaboración. Mi trayectoria, trabajando con equipos multi-disciplinarios internacionales, ha llevado a una fuerte convicción que el trabajo en equipo es la clave para el éxito compartido. Esto requiere la cercana participación de clientes, consultores y colegas para lograr las metas y objetivos comunes. Mi experiencia profesional en el Reino Unido y Mexico y colaboración en complejos proyectos internacionales me ha permitido tener un mejor conocimiento de las necesidades de individuos y organizaciones para adaptar el plan de trabajo y objetivos de manera acorde. La mejor estrategia para solucionar problemas es la de una colaboración efectiva e integral donde todos los participantes contribuyen a la solución. Proyectos Seleccionados Desde mi calificación profesional como arquitecto en 1998 en Mexico y en 2006 en Reino Unido, he tenido la oportunidad de colaborar en algunos de los mas destacados estudios de diseño en ambos países, participando en una amplia variedad de proyectos. Esto me ha permitido desarrollar aptitudes profesionales para solucionar retos venideros y desarrollar proyectos que puedan solucionar las condiciones de las personas y del medio ambiente. Por casi una década, la colaboración en Foster + Partners, una de los estudios de diseño más innovadores del mundo, me ha provisto con una visión de liderazgo, excelencia en el diseño, aptitudes de organización, colaboración con equipos internacionales y desarrollo de proyectos sustentables. MI participación en varias tipologías de proyecto tales como oficina, residencial, usos mixtos, hotelería e infraestructura, ha contribuido al continuo desarrollo de mi experiencia y aptitudes profesionales. Investigación y Desarrollo Desde temprana edad, he tenido un gran interés en la complejidad de los sistemas naturales, los rápidos desarrollos en tecnología y la importancia del buen diseño. Esto llevo a explorar nuevos temas durante estudios de posgrado e investigación en la Bartlett School of Architecture, University College London. Durante este periodo, pude explorar mis ideas en arquitectura adaptable que busco desarrollar en aplicaciones con un impacto positivo en la forma en que los edificios son diseñados, construidos y habitados. El reconocido programa de UCL (calificada una de las mejores escuelas de arquitectura a nivel mundial en 2015) y la abierta interacción con colegas, académicos y profesionales de todo el mundo, me permitió desarrollar un nuevo acercamiento a arquitectura. Creo que estas ideas, las cuales fueron publicadas y premiadas en concursos internacionales, pueden ser el próximo paso en diseño arquitectónico.

2018 - Current | Mixed-Use Corporate Project | Toluca, Mexico Our approach for this project provides maximum flexibility to anticipate and respond to our client’s future needs. At ground level, a series of public and retail spaces provide a variety of facilities to benefit the wider community, as well as the building’s tenants and guests. A modular prefabricated steel structure enables the creation of large, open spaces that can be re-configured to provide adaptable offices, promoting communication between the different users. The envelope, a combination of high-quality polycarbonate, glass and metal mesh panels, provides natural lighting and ventilation to all the internal spaces, giving the project a distinctive character in the surrounding urban context and resulting in a truly sustainable mixed-use building.

2017 - Current | Mixed-Use Project | London, United Kingdom S*ARC Responding to the competition to rethink the UK’s outdated gasholder structures, Salvador Rivas Architects proposed an innovative mixed-use development that could bring together a sustainable mixture of uses, from culture, hotel and office to residential to create a unique new community. The lower levels are dedicated to services, public spaces and green areas, whilst the upper levels accommodate the remaining functions. Our design is based on a standardised structural system for the buildings that can be applied to all their component parts and which allows for maximum flexibility should any building uses change in the future. The circular configuration enables the creation of a large internal courtyard that optimises natural ventilation and lighting and is covered by a lightweight geodesic domed. This protects both the central courtyard and landscaped roof terraces, allowing these sky-gardens to be used all year round.

2018 - Koliwada’s Koliving | Mumbai, India S*ARC + Monoforma - Runner Up at Reside International Design Competition We are really pleased with the results from ´Reside´ International Design Competition where a jury including Norman Foster, Daniel Libeskind and Dominique Perrault has chosen a proposal by s*arc: salvador rivas architects + monoforma as one of three runners-up in an international competition to develop ideas for the regeneration of Mumbai’s Koliwada peninsula. The ‘Reside’ ideas competition, initiated by arch out loud, set out to examine social segregation in India’s rapidly growing cities and look at alternative, more inclusive models of mixed-use housing development. The Koliwada Koliving concept aims to promote a sense of equality, belonging and pride among existing and new residents. This is achieved, in part, through ‘common ground’, on land and on water: attractive new public spaces, streets that encourage life and activity, new infrastructure and highly adaptable mixed residential units.

2017 - Current | Residential Tower | Monterrey S*ARC + IAARQ Salvador Rivas Architects + IAARQ have developed the design of a 20-storey residential tower in Monterrey, Mexico. The design considers the particular conditions of the site, in terms of planning restrictions, orientation and the opportunity for panoramic views, and departs from a conventional volumetric solution. The result is a distinctive and efficient volume that responds uniquely to its surroundings. The main objective is for each apartment to benefit from its orientation and maximise views, while maintaining an optimal internal distribution. The base of the tower accommodates the car parking requirements of the project and a series of amenities and landscaped areas for the enjoyment of residents and visitors alike. The project is currently in pre-sale and rapidly proceeding into construction documents stage.

2000 - 2004 | Bartlett School of Architecture | University College London Master in Architectural Design We have a keen interest in research and developing new ideas to improve our natural and built environment. We believe that the rapid developments in new technologies, from smart materials to building prototyping, can be harnessed to create more innovative, adaptive and sustainable buildings that can significantly improve people’s lives. The award-winning research projects on adaptable architecture and systems initiated by Salvador Rivas during his postgraduate studies at the Bartlett School of Architecture (UCL) have resulted in experimental projects that we are now further testing and applying into some of our current project proposals. Salvador is also currently participating at the Holcim Chair in Sustainable and Accessible Design at the Iberoamericana University in Mexico City.

Hand Drawing Architecture is one of the professional disciplines that has experimented one of the fastest changes on the way buildings are designed, detailed and built. The development of software has allowed students and professionals alike, to produce photo-realistic three-dimensional renders that aim to represent new ideas. However, machines cannot replace sketching and hand-drawing, as an immediate and economical resource for an architect or designer to record an idea. This also allows to test and continue developing options at a faster pace than that of a computer. “Drawing is the honesty of the art. There is no possibility of cheating. It is either good or bad.� - Salvador Dali

Refernces and Awards Throughout my academic education and professional career I have been fortunate to collaborate with inspiring mentors, employers and colleagues. From the assertive advice of Enrique Murillo, the inspiring guidance of Sir Peter Cook, the leading example of Lord Foster and the support from past and present employers, this experience has allowed me to develop skills to keep learning and improving as an architect and human being. Some of the projects I have submitted to national and international architecture competitions have received awards and recognitions from jury members such as Glenn Murcutt, John Pawson and Will Alsop. This is an inspiration to continue the journey.
