My journey as an Urban Designer began with my degree in architecture and urbanism at the Polytechnic University of Catalonia in Barcelona. Even though I came from a highly technical architectural background, I progressively developed an interest to broader scales and strategic contexts, interrogating cities, human behaviour, and social patterns. I had the great opportunity to be mentored by a distinguished landscape architect and urban designer for four consecutive years, who taught me the most crucial lesson: the profound impact that designing cities has on people’s lives and futures.
In addition to my professional practice, I ventured into new realms though research, design competitions, and workshops across Europe, Asia, and America. My motivation extended beyond expanding my knowledge and professional connections; I was intrigued by the prospect of learning from diverse cultures and places outside my comfort zone. This journey led me to London, where I underwent a transformative experience by enrolling in a post master’s degree in urban design at the Bartlett School of Architecture, University College London. During this course I expanded my creativity to new levels, while also gaining proficiency in advanced tools and delved into the broader picture of my career — my role and responsibility as a city individual and place-maker.
With over a decade of experience in urban design and masterplanning, I’ve honed my abilities to design with greater flexibility – from a ground-floor sensitivity and human-eye perspective, to strategic thinking. I approach design with passion and confidence, always placing the human experience and nature at the forefront of every decision. I see myself as a versatile professional, capable of working across various scales and overlapping disciplines.
