Cristina Vargas is a young architect who completed her five-year Bachelor of Architecture degree from Universidad San Francisco de Quito in 2007. In 2010, she founded the studio CRISTINA VARGAS ARQUITECTURA where she has developed several residential small and large scale projects. In the year 2015, she graduated from the Master of Science in Advanced Architectural Design, GSAPP - Columbia University, New York. Currently, Cristina is an Associate Professor at Universidad San Francisco de Quito.

Her professional experience in Ecuador – South America and her academic postgraduate degree from Columbia University allowed this young architect to broad her perspective related to design. She was born and raised in South America. Consequently, she has been exposed to cultural diversities which allowed this young architect to question, adapt, re-think and explore new possibilities of architectural design in a globalized world.

Cristina is an adaptive and fearless explorer of ideas. One of her main sources of inspiration when designing is trying to understand how local specificities play a huge role among the design process which are finally reflected into the built environment globally. She is always encouraged to learn, reinvent, rethink, and question her own practice. Her current interests and work focusses on the participation of local citizens/communities. Residents are experts in their neighborhoods. Therefore, they constitute essential knowledge which can empower architecture, urban development and planning.
