He studied architecture at the Universidad del Desarrollo in Santiago de Chile, receiving his degree in 2017 with the highest distinction.

Meritxell Inaraja Genís (Vic, 1968), Founder of Meritxell Inaraja Arquitecta, graduated from the Technical School of Architecture of Barcelona. Her architecture is defined by a commitment to functionality, a deep respect for the environment and the constant presence of light. Restoration projects include: the old coin factory “La Seca” which was transformed into a cultural complex; the Walls of Vic; and the Tossa de Montbui Tower. Significant new construction projects are cultural buildings: Historical Archive in Montsià, Ribera d’Ebre and Garraf and the Palafolls School of Music and Dance.


Joe Martinolich
is founder of JMM - Joe Martinolich Architect. He has lived in Lexington, Kentucky, “Horse Capital of the World”, for almost 25 years and established his own design firm in 2014. While experienced in a variety of architectural building types, Joe was led to a passion for equine design through his wife’s lifelong interest in and love for horses, as well as being surrounded and influenced by the beautiful horse country in and around Lexington. Joe has worked with clients to create equine facilities that combine functionality, safety, and creativity for the horse and the people who care for them. He has worked throughout the United States as well as internationally, including the United Arab Emirates, Mexico, Brazil, the Dominican Republic and China. Projects have included stables, riding arenas, equine breed museums, equine veterinary and university facilities. 


Todd Poisson
is a Partner at BKSK. With over 25 years of experience, Todd has been responsible for the design and construction of ambitious residential, mixed-use, and institutional projects. He is the Partner-in-Charge of the NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission-approved addition of a contemporary glass dome to the storied Tammany Hall landmark building on NYC’s Union Square; and 16 East 16th Street, the conversion and expansion of a historic Ladies Mile building into a hotel. 


Julie Nelson is a Partner and a lead architect at BKSK. She was the Project Architect for the LEED® Platinum-certified Queens Botanical Garden Visitor & Administration Center, which received an AIA Committee on the Environment (COTE) Top Ten Green Projects Award. More recently she served as the partner-in-charge for the new 53,000 sf Athletics & Wellness Center for Convent of the Sacred Heart School.
