Why did you study Architecture?
Probably because it is challenging. You get to study so many different fields, including Art, History, Material Science, Physics, anything that can help to improve the living environment of human beings. I like that you get to work on real-life problems of designing functional buildings.
My architect hero?
No one in particular, but I really admire the work and philosophy of Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer. I love the way he shaped concrete buildings, their sinuosity, that’s why he is known as “the concrete poet”.
My two favorite buildings?
Unfortunately I have never visited any of Niemeyer’s buildings, so I would say the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and La Pedrera (or Casa Milà) located in Barcelona and designed by Antoni Gaudì. I had the chance to visit both of them and the experience was amazing, much better than simply studying them in a book.
Using my skills in a different field, maybe as an art director or a set designer…
Favorite San Diego experience?
So many, but I would pick walking at Sunset Cliffs, La Jolla Cove and Torrey Pines.
After this incredible experience, I would like to find a job in Europe, possibly in France or in UK, and maybe coming back to the US in the future.
