Born in Bogota, Colombia, Carlos enjoys travelling around the globe for both personal leisure and professional development. From designing and resettling remote communities in Africa and Central America, to wandering through cities and villages in Western and Eastern Europe, to designing an award-winning financial centre and healthcare facility in Dubai, Carlos is keenly intrigued by the influence environments, spaces, and the public realm have on people’s behaviour, livelihood, and well-being.
Having studied architecture, then becoming an urban designer and registered planner, Carlos navigates urban design, planning, and architecture projects of various scales and scopes with a practical, flexible, and human-centred approach. Carlos believes we can accomplish big picture goals by implementing small elements one by one to achieve the result.
Carlos enjoys simple pleasures, staying active and true to his cultural roots, and a good strong cup of unaltered dark roast coffee.
