Educated between Caracas, Cambridge US and London UK. Luis Enrique Treviño's work has a fundamentally international approach. The method: to continue looking abroad, examining a diversity of cultural solutions.
Luis graduated from Harvard’s GSD in 2001 with a special mention from the jury on his last studio with Catalan architect Beth Gali, and continued learning from other tutors, such as Herzog & de Meuron and Willem Neutelings, exchanging and engaging with fellow architects.
He worked for Rick Mather architects
for eight years exclusively on extensions of museums. RMA won the 2010 Stirling Prize with the Ashmolean Museum Extension, whom he was intimately involved for the last six years.
Luis is convinced that research and constructive client relationships are paramount to a successful architectural practice. His aim is to create buildings that express a sense of place within a coherent response to their context, and to meet the client’s needs while delivering architectural integrity. He pro-actively develops client briefs by inviting and encouraging response from involved parties as a means to defining key parameters which in turn “unlock” the potential of the schemes.
Luis' approach to the planning of buildings stems from getting the most out of the brief and site. Innovative solutions in maximising net / gross efficiency have helped develop a reputation for achieving value for money in his work.
