Cristina Roiz de la Parra Solano


I completed my architectural studies between the Escuela Técnica Superior de Arquitectura in Madrid, Spain and  the Accademia di Architettura in Mendrisio, Switzerland.

I gained professional experience in several offices in the UK and Switzerland, Miller & Maranta Architekten and DRDH Architects amongst others. I taught a design unit at Kingston University of Art in London from 2016 to 2020, when I started my current role in the school as lecturer in the dissertation module.

In 2019 I founded my own practice and in 2020 I joined Studio Sergison at Accademia di Architettura in Mendrisio as a teaching assistant and started a PhD research, focusing on ideas about domesticity in Italy and Spain during the second postwar period.
