Combined with his innate curiosity and perseverance, Carlos’ ability to deeply immerse himself in a new project is what gives him an edge as a designer. “I am a very curious person and I just really like to learn about a lot of things”. Carlos intentionally seeks learning experiences whenever he sees an opportunity. “When I was still in school, I spent my summer breaks in Mexico City, and I got to work for my stepfather who is also an architect. I had fun memories of our site visits where I got to see our projects as they were being constructed. Those moments made my appreciation for urbanism and architecture even more profound.”
His robust technical skills and his level of enthusiasm for the future of public spaces perfectly match the distinct demands of the types of projects he is currently working on at M2.

- What are you most passionate about in your profession?
- I am most passionate about the aesthetic & design elements of architecture but I'm also very passionate about the relationship between architecture and urban life. It's interesting to see how a well-designed building not only can impact the people inhabiting it. It can also have a significant and positive impact on its surrounding urban environment if it is designed well.
- Talk to me about….
- Anything, really. I'm usually pretty interested in what people have to say or like to say.
- Why architecture?
- Ever since I can remember, I was fascinated by skyscrapers. Like how could they reach such heights? What do they accommodate? Who builds them? How? How can they all look so different? These questions sparked my curiosity on what architecture is, and as I learned more, the more I liked it. It made me realized how architecture is unavoidable. It's everywhere we go, and it’s very complex and I think knowing how this important aspect of our life works and impacts the cities we live in is pretty cool.
