Mexican Architect, relentless designer of objects and spaces of any scale, sketcher and happy experimenter.

Rocío Soto is graduated from the Design and Architecture School of the ITEMS Campus Querétaro, winner of The National Prize of Architectural Composition Ing. Alberto J. Pani, edition XXII, awarded by the UNAM National Autonomus University of México. She conducted studies in the Faculty of Architecture of the Polytechnic University of Turin and experimental jewellery at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London.

Her professional trajectory has been characterized by the exploration of different disciplines and scales. As member of Estudio Lamela she participated in the interior design and construction of the Contact Center of Banco Santander and through experimentation she comes in contact with jewellery design. From this experience she created the brand BURDO accessories, which adapts materials that are typically associated with big scales to smaller scales, transforming urban materials in pieces of jewellery that anybody could fancy wearing.

In 2009 she co-founds MALVA, a studio devoted to interior design and architecture. The studio seeks the generation of authentic and colorful spaces with an eclectic style. The designs produced by MALVA highlight the beauty of apparent materials and emphasize the integration of the design and its surroundings.

Rocío permanently uses drawing as a graphical record of ideas and everyday life. Her sketchbooks contain stories told from the paper and have blank pages as starting point for private and professional thinking processes. During the last year her drawings have increase in size, moving from the sketchbooks to larger formats, invading not only paper but also furniture and walls with monochromatic and abstract textures. Proof of that is this first individual exhibition named "Ruido en la mente" (Noise in the mind") exhibited this spring at the City Museum of Querétaro, México.

In the field of visual arts during 2013 in collaboration with the artist Nando Murio, participated in a performance in “Galleri 54” in Kulturnatta, a cultural night organized by the city of Gothenburg. They also collaborated in the creation of a mural for Särlaskolan in the city of Borås, Sweden. She's currently working on a mural for Hammarkullen's Folket Hus.

Rocío looks for the involvement in experimental projects that integrate architecture, jewellery design and drawing under the same design line. Read Less
