#Repost from @gulf.coast.designlab . #GCDLStaffspotlight No. 3: Diego Zubizarreta Otero, MArch I GCDL: What attracted you to join the @Gulf.Coast.designlab ? . DZO: I believe that #gooddesign should be for everyone, it shouldn’t be understood as a luxury available only to a select few. Design is about transforming constraints to #opportunities , finding inventive solutions that result in beautiful, dignified and thoughtful spaces. This is what the Gulf Coast Design Lab is all about, and we’re incredibly fortunate to work with such inspiring people as @camparanzazu , our partner and client this semester. . GCDL: What is currently on your desk? What are you working on? . DZO: Lots of #sketches on #trace , printer paper, napkins, ripped out #sketchbook paper with a mix of #architecturaldrawings and graffiti pieces on them. A meme poster inspired by Breaking Bad which reads “I AM the Studio.” And #chingbooks because we’re going to be starting our CD set soon! . GCDL: What would you tell your classmates upon completion of the project? . DZO: That I’m grateful for the amazing opportunity to grow, learn and share ideas with a talented and #dedicated group of people, and that we should be proud to have designed and built a space where kids can have fun, #grow , learn, and #reach beyond their limits. . GCDL: Describe the #studioculture ? . DZO: My side of the room doesn’t ever turn on the lights in the morning (I call them the #vampires ) but I need plenty of light to work, so thats my first stop after the door. We work hard but also have a lot of fun, and we’ve recently acquired a #mascot (#thecREACHure ) which is both cute and absolutely terrifying. . GCDL: What are some things that are okay to do occasionally but definitely not okay to do every day? . DZO: Eating #tacos . I love tacos and there are so many great options in #Austin (my favorite is Taco Joint). Sadly, our wallets will disagree that they’re something to eat every day. -- Diego Zubizarreta Otero diegoz@utexas.edu Archi-Insta: @tallerdizeno Graffiti-Insta: @benka1one
