What do you like most about your job / working at Hyphen?
Architecture is like people, there is no one identical to the other. They might look similar at first, but every company, institution and client have their own particular needs and culture. Architecture should be able to respond to that uniqueness and fulfil projects’ special needs.
Who or what was the most important influence in your early career?
Carolina Perez, who showed me amazing leadership, knowledge and vision. She taught me the greatest asset you can possess is attitude.
