Cristina Asla Ortiz de Latierro became part of the Architect-US Job+J1 Visa Program this year, and is very excited to be working with Wheeler Kearns Architects in Chicago soon. For her first submission to the Portfolio Challenge, Cristina provided a project called Rehabilitacion Casa Pastors, while this time around she is submitting a project that is tied deeply with Art and design aesthetics. Her project called TODOROKI VALLEY draws from her curatorial studies and aims to design a space that is tied to nature, as well as a prayer space in the dojo.

Cristina plays around with the possible dimensions and adds different fixtures that add to the openness and sense of freedom to roam through the buildings different levels. She also provides a sense of context for the structure within the lower river basin of the area she would build this structure within. The balance between technical drawings, design, and artistic beauty is refreshing and the colors chosen complement the structure.
