Throughout her twenty years career in the UK, Cristina, a Chartered Member of the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), has seen the best projects emerge when the people sitting around the table, both at the office and on-site, reflected the diversity of the communities they were shaping and hence the desire to engage a wider audience with her work.
