I’m passionate about most things that interest me: I’m South American, after all! But architecture got my juices going when I was in elementary school and it never let up. Architecture is one of the few professions that has an enormous impact on society, since almost every human activity is conducted in a spaced designed by an architect. Think about it – you were born in a hospital, live in a house, go to a school, get married in a church, etc, – all buildings designed by architects. I’m also passionate about the social responsibility of architects and about the wide-ranging nature of the profession, which accommodates everything from the most esoteric design pursuits to the most challenging construction and management roles. It’s all in a day’s work. How can you not be passionate? We are changing the world.
