Macarena Chaves Martinez joins us for the Portfolio Challenge with a project called the Ocean Retreat. Architect-US Job+J1 Visa Program more recently and has been working towards getting Macarena an opportunity to work in the USA. Ocean Retreat aims to create a space for structures that are tied to the nature around it, and build off of it, rather than against it.
