Coro López-Izquierdo (Madrid 1958) is an architect and currently a lecturer in Architectural Drawing I and Architectural Drawing II at the Escuela Técnica Superior de Edificación at the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid.

 

Passion for art and architecture are part of the DNA of López-Izquierdo's family, forming part of a saga of architects that goes back to his great-grandfather.

 

"Her interest in experimentation with architecture, the natural and the urban environment. His style within modern realism describes a constantly changing reality through a profound study of light, colour and form. Coro explores and documents his environment by visiting the spaces that catch his attention and then working in his studio. He manages to place tradition at the service of a new personal discourse".
