Loreana Padron graduated from the Central University of Venezuela, where she is a fully registered architect. She has worked for the Direction of Cultural Buildings of Venezuela and later for a private architectural studio. In both places she has practiced as a project manager for different types of cultural and residential buildings and renovations.
"I believe sustainable architecture is not really about the implementation of the highest technology and machines in a building to try to make it nicer to the environment: It is basically about a good and conscious design in accordance to the context. Therefore, most of the times with less you can really help the environment more, which translates of course in less embodied energy."
Loreana was awarded the maximum International Scholarship and graduated with a high 2:1 at the MA Architecture: Sustainability & Design at the University of East London.
Since graduation she has undertaken Environmental Consultancy work at Levitt Bernstein and Architecture for Change, in particular she has worked on The Environmental Design Pocketbook.
