[ hello! ]
I am Unai! I am a Basque emigré, architect, urban planner, designer, gardening aficionado and a New York City resident.
Born and raised in the Basque Country, I moved to Barcelona and attended the Escola Superior d’Arquitectura de Barcelona. I graduated as Architect and Urban Planner and in 2011 I moved to the US pursuing a career with a focus on international projects.
After almost a decade leading an acclaimed architecture firm in NYC I co-founded bloq studio in 2020; an architecture and design studio based in Brooklyn.
I am currently involved in the organization of the New York City Architecture Biennial and I collaborate with Amplified Voices Productions, an emerging photography and film production company with a focus in the empowerment of the BIPOC and LGBTQ+ communities in the US.
In 2020 I founded bloq studio, a Brooklyn-based architecture and design studio that operates at the intersection in between the analog world and digital technologies.
In a world gravitating towards aesthetic homogeneity driven by the demands of globalization, we believe in the importance of craftsmanship in our profession while making the most of the advantages provided by technological avant-garde.
