Alvaro Guillen‘s “Cultuhipismo” was created with the aim of fostering a space for discussion and the battle of ideas. Alvaro created this project during his studies at Universidad Francisco Vitoria (UFV) in Spain. The space he creates consists of a Gym, Space for Debate, Communal Gym, Algae Farm and Park, and even an Electro-Ceremony.
What is an Electro-Ceremony? It consists of a space for dancing and expressing your emotions. Every aspect of life is covered in this design. Throughout the design is a deep underlying dedication to sustainability.

As you can tell, many of these experiences in the design are tied to the sustainability of the community and require a deeper understanding of self, in order to value others.
Now Alvaro Guillen is living in San Francisco while working at AMLGM. He worked his way towards his career change to the USA, and emphasized the value that his internship experience at NH Hotels gave him fresh out of University.
