Born in Guatemala City in 1992, Osmin is an Architect living in Spain. He holds a Bachelor of Architecture from Universidad del Istmo de Guatemala and a Master of Advanced Architecture from the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia. His professional career has been shaped by practicing Architecture between America, Europe and Asia.
“Osmin is a hard worker, professional, and easy to be around. He works well in a team and genuinely wants to learn. He has a great attitude, up for anything, which to me is always the sign of a curious mind. He was an important member of our team and we miss him.”
