Rocio Batlle ChastangGraduate
I came to Melbourne in late 2014 from Spain. I graduated from the Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya, including an exchange year in RMIT, and completed a year of my Masters in TUDelft (The Netherlands) specialising on the rehabilitation, reuse and restoration of buildings.
A part from my love for our building tradition and heritage, I am interested in human-centred design and contextually placed buildings. Inspired by Codesign Studio, a place making social enterprise, I joined them as an intern for 3 months. After that, full or curiosity and eager to jump into new challenges, I joined ARM in 2015. There, I had the opportunity to expand my skillset and became a BIM specialist to work in projects such as the Sydney Opera House, Flinders St Station, HOTA Gold Coast Gallery and the Commonwealth Games Village.
Now 2018, Melbourne Metro with Weston Williamson.
When not designing, I can be found swimming around Melbourne, ingredient hunting in food markets, or taking care of my veggie garden.
