Diego received a Masters of Landscape Architecture Environmental Planning from the University of California Berkeley and Architecture from Universidad Finis Terrae, Chile.
Diego is a strong design thinker, generating narratives that make us understand the design project as an access point in time, allowing multiple urban forces at play to have a deep awareness of the role each of them has in the context in which designers operate. He approaches design as the trans-disciplinary integration between architecture, landscape, art, ecology, and the socio-spatial complexities within these dynamic interactions.
He joins GLS after a decade of architectural design practice in Chile. As an associate architect and landscape designer, he works independently with the principal and other GLS members to design and oversee a diverse range of project typologies from the concept design phase through the construction phase.
His design work has been published in multiple specialized media globally, co-receiving the Rothoblass Award from the Italian Embassy in Santiago, multiple Honor Awards for Excellence in Design, and a Rockefeller Foundation grant through the 100 Resilient program. He was also invited as an adjunct faculty by the School of Architecture at Woodbury University San Diego and has been a studio lead instructor at UC Berkeley as well as a professor of architecture, landscape, and urban design in several Chilean universities.Back to Staff
