My work involves two distinct stages, the first one during my life in Cuba and the second -since 1992- in Spain. The first stage was devoted to professional practice as an Architect and Designer and to teaching Architectural Design at the Faculty of Architecture and of Industrial Design at the Higher Institute of Industrial Design, both in Havana. Since 1992 I have focused my efforts on research and teaching in the areas of Graphic Expression and Computer Aided Design at the University of Cantabria in Santander.
Much of my work as an architect was devoted to the design of schools, including among them the Vocational School of the province of Camaguey, one of the 186 Modern Movement buildings that in 2010 were included in the Cuban Registry of National and Local Monuments.
Among other works it is worth mentioning the monument to José Martí, Cuba's national hero that was erected in Rome in 1988.
