Cecilia was born and raised in Mexico City, where she studied Architecture graduating from the Universidad Iberoamericana in 2012. Since then, she went on to try different aspects of the architectural practice, from design to construction supervising, and finally to real-estate development. Three years later and with the combination of such different experiences she has developed an interest for the relationship between Architecture and Urbanism with their immediate context: geographical, political, economic and social. She believes that as architects, we have the ability to physically influence our surroundings which may then lead to major changes in a society, but in order to do so, we must be more critical and learn from our own History. This made her look into studying more about the theoretical debates of architecture and modernity and led her to enroll in the MA in History and Critical Thinking at the Architectural Association School of Architecture.
