Valentina Marin studied Architecture at the Faculty of Architecture and Urbanism at the University of Chile and MSc Spatial Design Architecture and Cities at the Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL.
Her research interest focuses on understanding how changes of spatial systems take place in cities and how these changes affect the social dynamics. During her post graduate studies in London, Valentina explored the impacts on urban systems affected by catastrophic events, using a spatial configurational approach to understand and enhance the recovery and resilience of cities affected by tsunamis.
She has worked as an architect and urban designer in projects of different scales including master planning and design of complex buildings, for the public and private sector.
Valentina joined Space Syntax as an Intern in September 2016 and joined the company as a Consultant in January 2017.
Recent work includes public realm strategic designs in London and performance analysis of complex building systems in Dubai.
