About me

Mikel Berra-Sandín

 

I am a determined, precise and hard-working professional, willing to get the most of architecture and cities so as to learn how to improve human habitat. My approach to architecture and urban planning is polyhedral, seeing those subjects as part of a complex reality, where other issues such as social sciences, history, technology, ecology and economy take part. Analyzing those, I try to make a clear architecture: user-friendly, commited to the place and creating memorable landmarks.
