Alfredo Munoz, Spanish architect born in Burgos, showed interest in transforming the world through design from early childhood. At the age of 5 I showed a very unusual and obsessive interest in trying to experiment many varieties of art. Ever since then, his life was characterized by a constant resistance to follow orders and for the search of intellectual freedom as well as the exploration of new cultures and lifestyles. This attitude developed the personality of Alfredo Munoz as pro – active, highly sociable, and extroverted, with a natural ease for human relations. All that, plus the influence of to dynamic business-like family environment, had as a result, his interest for a nomadic and autonomous lifestyle.
Thus, Alfredo Munoz developed a great interest for anthropology and international relations which lead him to grow an entrepreneurial and global mind. Alfredo Munoz interests for diverse disciplines like Mathematics, Fine Arts, and Design, led him to volunteer as an assistant to some renowned architecture in his hometown, and later, to attend architecture school in the prestigious Polytechnic University of Madrid.During his college education times, I kept making compatible his academic and professional life, working for several architectural firms s of international prestige, as that of Alberto Campo Baeza, or Inaki abalos & Juan Herreros. This time of intense work education was combined with constant educational trips around Europe, USA and Latin America. His graduation in the Architecture School of the Polytechnic University of Madrid (UPM) as the youngest architect in decades was highly recognized and respected by the Proffesors, among them by Mariano Bayon, who encouraged him to work in Asia. Alfredo Munoz then moved to Japan, where he started working for the acclaimed architect Toyo Ito. This experience meant for Alfredo to personal and professional turning point, when I have learned and also consolidated many of the architectural and psychological ideas that I had explored for years.
