I’m Pedro Velasquez, a recent graduate from the University of Houston’s College of Architecture. I completed my Bachelor’s degree between the summer of 2008 and fall of 2011. I was exposed to an assortment of design projects ranging in scale from product design to urban master plans.Born, raised, and living in Houston, Texas has given me the point of view of a 20th century car city, and has highlighted what is needed for a 21st century sustainable one. My greatest influence has been discourse on social, cultural, and ecologic sustainability, and the importance of a holistic approach to design solutions. This blog will collect and share ideas related to the cultural, social, economic, and ecologic realms of architecture and design.
