Rafael Robles


Chicago Headquarters

As an architect, my biggest interest is how we can apply the design process to solve challenges that improve human life. My work experience spans several scales and mediums, including architectural design, urban planning, graphics and branding, art, and business strategy. I design and advocate for equitable and culturally significant projects that foster stronger communities and produce interesting environments. My approach to design is driven by research, model making, prototyping and a commitment to developing solutions that serve people and the interactions between them. I’m a big advocate for human rights and volunteer with organizations in Chicago that focus on immigrant rights, and equitable real estate development. I received my bachelor of science degree in architecture from the University of Illinois at Chicago, where I learned how to intersect the fields of architecture, art, and design.
