a Chilean architect
I work in research and development of public policies for social housing and self-built territories, linking it to school and university education projects with an interdisciplinary and active citizenship approach for the co-creation of neighborhoods.
I find it necessary and comfortable to work with people from other disciplines and backgrounds. That is why I have worked side by side with neighborhood leaders, philosophers, economists, sociologists, social workers, actors, geographers, and lawyers, among others.
