Marco Campa

I am an architectural designer with a strong academic foundation and over 10 years of professional experience in residential, commercial, and religious projects. 

 Professionally, I have been involved with more than fifty projects as a lead designer and as part of a team.
From residential to commercial, including high-end residential, retail stores, schools, community centers, boutiques, restaurants and churches, I have a strong background in all phases of design and extensive technical knowledge of materials, local and international codes, building systems, and environmental design strategies. 

As a passionate creative, I am interested in the intersection of contemporary art and architecture. I am deeply influenced by history, conceptual theory, and sculptural art. My approach to design is undoubtedly influenced by my upbringing in Mexico, my multidisciplinary experience, my studies and research in Italy and Japan, and my continuous travels throughout the world.
