Pablo Wenceslao
Full-time Faculty
(425) 739-8100 ext. 8410

Master of Architecture, Massachusetts Institute of Technology Course study at M.I.T. Media Lab, Harvard Graduate School of Design, and University of Washington

Pablo has over 7 years of experience in the areas of architecture and industrial design. Research and areas of interest include: Kinetic and portable structures as they relate to sustainable practices and multi-programmatic spaces; multi-functional products; and projects for under-developed communities.

Design Philosophy: Place as a phenomenon is more than a location; it is made up of tangible elements and intangible forces that give space its distinct character. Architecture and industrial design not only serves as the mediator between people and place but serve as the catalyst that activates the physical and cultural environment. Designs whose role and essence engage the forces that act upon them become indelible objects in a world of constant flux.
