Between Sea and Cliffs

Ever since Guillermo Del Rio was a kid he has loved creating new designs by sketching. His father was an engineer that influenced his way of viewing the world and his interest in understanding how buildings work. Fast forward to today and he is now working in San Francisco at McGinnis Chen Associates after losing his previous job due to COVID. Learn about his Masters project Between Sea and Cliffs, where he tries to reflect the relationship between the waves and hills!

Guillermo del Rio started working on this project during his spring term 2017-18 at the Polytechnic University of Madrid (ETSAM) and he was interested in trying to create a positive environment for the creative arts. Guillermo draws inspiration from the waves and the sea and the hills and the caves. In Between Sea and Cliffs, we see his top notch skills in rendering, as well as an immense level of detail.
