SILVIA G. FUSTER received her Masters in Architecture from Harvard University and her Bachelors in Urban Planning and Architecture from Brown University. Prior to founding VAMOS, Silvia was the Project Architect for the Diane von Furstenberg Headquarters, a 35,000 square foot mixed-use building for the fashion design company in the Meatpacking District in New York. The building houses the company’s New York store, a 5,000 SF showroom, design and administrative offices, and an executive suite. Silvia’s role encompassed design development, client relations, and daily on-site construction administration. She has also worked on multiple residential projects in New York and in Barcelona, Spain. In addition to her training as an architect, Silvia has extensive experience as an urban planner. She led a variety of university campus master plans and regional planning projects with world reknowned urban planners and architects Denise Scott Brown and Robert Venturi. As Project Manager for the Campus Life Planning Project at Brown University, a 120-acre campus in Providence, RI, Silvia led an extensive analysis of the campus and helped to define its plans for future growth. Throughout this process she engaged in debates with Brown’s many complex communities -- students, Board Members, faculty, staff, and members of the surrounding urban community. In 2002, Silvia also acted as Project Manager for the Regional Plan for the Bouregreg Valley, an ecologically-fragile 12,500- acre site located in the estuary of Morocco’s capital city, Rabat. The master plan for the site included a new university campus, a convention center and business district, housing developments, and entertainment and tourist facilities. All of the elements were carefully designed to respond to existing land use, transportaion patterns, and needs for future growth. Silvia grew up in New York and in her parents’ native Barcelona.
