If you won the lottery, what is the first thing you would do?
I first would be to help the poor in my country by generating work places. For example, a lot of people in Ecuador have construction knowledge and I always had the dream of building houses for poor people but having them working in the construction of their home. So is not only helping them by giving them money but giving them are reason to work for and a home.
Who is your favorite architect (or one of your favorite spaces by an architect)?
Alejandro Aravena. He is Chilean architect who has been designing housing projects in many countries, his idea is based on fast housing construction by building half of a house, these homes are given / sold to low income people. These houses have structures to develop the other half of the house at any moment the owners decide to expand their home.
What type of projects do you enjoy working on?
If it is work aside from the company, I like to build things, like furniture or painting. I truly enjoy creating small scale items that I can say I made them.
What would you be doing if you weren’t an architect?
A soccer player or a product designer / graphic designer / I also love drawing and painting.
