Mijail Gutierrez

RIBA, MPhil (RCA)
Associate Principal, London

Mijail’s story is defined by curiosity and imagination. From an early age Mijail wanted to apply his creativity with a purpose. He was inspired to pursue a career as an architect in his native Venezuela where colour, architecture, and applied arts enticed his creative aspirations. Architecture offered him the ideal platform for bringing positive change to people’s experiences by combining imagination, rigour, and artistic expression.

His inquisitive mindset led him to expand his architectural studies to the philosophy of design. Fascinated by how places can influence culture, Mijail is constantly searching for future trends and challenging his own working practices to imagine possibilities outside the norm.

His design philosophy is based on constructing engaging design narratives, combined with architectural rigour to drive design excellence.
