Architect, urban planner and design manager who delivers the highest standards of creative concepts, design and architectural solutions for complex issues in every social context. Working in the field of architecture and management I have developed 17 years of extensive knowledge of the entire design and construction process of various complex, small and large-scale architectural and urban development projects with optimal results.
My multicultural background from Colombia, Germany and the Netherlands, has given me the necessary sensitivity to understand the deepest cultural, social and environmental aspects of an architectural issue to solve the future problems of our habitat. I’ve worked on projects, plans and visions around the Netherlands and Colombia on a strategic, tactical and practical level.
The last years I am been involved across the Netherlands, Belgium and Colombia in the development, design and construction of airport facilities, land and air side airport infrastructure, office buildings, train stations, multi-functional buildings, multi-family residential projects, residential houses, retail, public spaces, hotels, casinos, hospitals, schools and urban development.
As side activity, I am been also helping companies across the Netherlands and Colombia to connect each other creating new opportunities and markets into the architecture and engineer market.
I support also local no governmental organizations in Colombia, to understand new Public Private Partnership’s (PPP) projects and its impact on the city, the people and the privet and public spaces.
