Information


Hola!

My name is Andrea and I am an architect and designer from Puerto Rico. In few words, I have always been interested in the intersections between design, art, architecture and urbanism, their effect in society and vice-versa. Another imperative goal is to generate collaborations and interdisciplinary projects that create a plural effect on our cities and surroundings. Last but not least I consider that adding large amounts of fun and passion in what I do is always a key ingredient. Thank you for visiting!
