Architects with a wide and recognized trajectory share their professional and intellectual background with Architecture students of cycles V and VII
Architecture is one of the fastest evolving professions. After a stage, in which the architect was located in front of his large work table, he has now moved on to sit in front of a computer and handle cutting-edge technology. This advance by leaps and bounds requires that the student of this career is in a permanent acquisition of abilities and skills. This is very clear to the Professional School of Architecture of the Universidad Peruana Unión.
Indeed, the constant appropriation of new knowledge is what allows finally to function successfully in an environment that evolves very quickly. This is the reason why, from this academic unit of the UPeU, the participation of highly distinguished specialists who share their knowledge and experiences has been managed.
On this occasion, the architect Jorge Sanchez Herrera, who has a master’s degree in Housing and Urbanism from the Architectural Association in London, participated in the event. He is also the executive director of Nómena, an architecture studio with which he has successfully developed projects of various scales and uses. His business experience ranges from private homes, multi-family complexes, cultural centers, educational complexes, to urban interventions.
Likewise, the outstanding presence of Carlos Morales Dávila, master in Architecture, Urbanism and Sustainable Territorial Development, is currently completing the MSc in Human Settlements at KU Leuven – Belgium (VLIR-UOS ICP 2020/2021 fellow). He has accumulated 7 years of professional experience linked to the fields of architecture, urban planning, and landscape.
The direct beneficiaries of this rich professional experience were 30 students from the V cycle of the Architectural Design course and 20 students from the VII cycle of the Urbanism course, respectively. In this way, the official chair taught in this career is complimented with the contribution of these top-level exhibitors.
