MSc in Sustainablem Environmental Design, Architectural Association School of Architecture, Londres.
As a full-time architect, March 2010 to July 2015, in the office of Guillermo Vázquez Consuegra, one of the most prestigious architects in Spain, I had great opportunities to really hone my design thinking and technical skills. During this period, she took part in the development of a wide range of national and international projects, ranging from urban planning to detailed construction design thereby enabling me to acquire an extensive professional knowledge in urban scale and architecture. To be highlighted the Renovation and Conversion of the Luxembourg Old Justice Palace into New Minister of Foreign Affairs (1st Prize and completion of the building in 2016), the Restoration and Renovation of the Archaeological Museum of Seville, the restricted competition Nantes Interior-BIA Bottière Chenaie (2nd Prize), or the Centre of Interpretation for the Murcia Medieval for the preservation of the Archaeological site of San Esteban, Murcia (finalist).
In 2015, she was awarded a fully funded scholarship sponsored by Talentia Fellowship Program by the Ministry of Economy, Innovation, Science and Employment of Spain, to study the MSc Sustainable Environmental Design Programme at the Architectural Association School of Architecture in London. The final dissertation ‘Learning from the Traditional Architecture of Cádiz. Guidelines for Retrofitting Historical Buildings’ participated in prestigious congress such as the PLEA 2017 in Edinburgh.
