Miguel went to Universidad de Castilla – La Mancha for his degree in Architecture, and during that Academic time Miguel was able to practice his design skills and be creative with his ideas for projects. Below you will see how Miguel worked through the experience of being in this town, where the best view of the church is from different hidden angles and views that are not readily available or open to the general public.

We want to highlight the beautiful work of the other seven incredible artists that were showcased in February!!
In second place was Tiago Ferreira‘s Falling Light with 229 Likes on Instagram. Falling Light focused on providing different sectioned off areas of a building that each provide space for a different activity. The natural light is shown through the building structure, and is enhanced by different designs within the structure.
In third place was Bianca Dobru‘s Office Building with 221 Likes on Instagram. Office Building provides us with the façade and the lobby renderings show a design that is reminiscent of a flower and the slope towards the center creates a sense of openness that is calming and relaxing. The façade was created to disperse the natural light in a way that it reaches different parts of the office and enlightens areas.
In fourth place was Marta Espinosa‘s Art Innovation Center with 137 Likes in Instagram.In the last Portfolio Challenge submission by Marta, she submitted her project called Territorial Planning and Equestrian Facilities ,which was influenced by her love for Equestrian. Marta has joined us again for another submission called Art Innovation Center and has added details regarding her inspiration and how she seeks to connect the center to the nature around it. Marta worked at Torrence Architects in Los Angeles and loved the experience.
