Marta joined Bryden Wood in 2017. She is originally from Murcia (Spain), and has experience and passion in participating across all stages of the design process, from inception to completion, and strategy to delivery. This is reflected by the diversity of roles and responsibilities she has undertaken across research and practice, in both Spain and London, which include conceptual design, detailed and technical design, research into robotics and 3D printing, production of construction packages and site work.
She graduated from the University Polytechnic of Valencia in 2013, and this is where her passion for design, placemaking and the built environment developed, allowing her to explore other fields and skills such as landscape architecture, urbanism and technical skills. Moving to London in 2013, she completed the Masters in Architecture and Urbanism (DRL), at the Architectural Association School of Architecture (AA) in 2016.
Her final thesis was focused on the research and development of new design strategies with the use of robotics and 3D printing processes as a design tool. While developing digital fabrication techniques she also produced sculptural elements with the aid of advanced computation and scripting.
Following the completion of this course, she worked at Everest Home Improvements as a Planning & UK Regulations Co-ordinator, which gave her valuable insight into the U.K. Planning system, followed by one year of experience as an architect in Paul Vick Architects Ltd where she worked in several residential projects in West London and was involved in a complex renovation scheme of a series of listed buildings in Northampton.
During her start at Bryden Wood Marta was involved in the development and delivery of drawings of Sugar House Island School for stage 3 and in the conceptual design stage of North Twyford CoE High School.
Currently, Marta has been focused on Vamed Birmingham contributing in the 3D modelling with BIM software and in the creation of architectural plans with greater knowledge in construction and structural details.
