Operating at the intersection of architecture, landscape, and urbanism, her work interrogates the agency of design promoting cultural and environmental values in the agenda of urban sustainability. Her recent research projects articulate urban design strategies in response to urgent socio-spatial challenges and visualize urban landscape dynamics through time, examine the 20th-century legacies of water urbanization, and map nonconforming practices of urbanization. Her teaching includes design studios, seminars and interdisciplinary workshops that incorporate experiential learning components through partnerships across the Great Lakes Region, Latin America, and Europe.María is founding partner of MAde Studio, a collaborative research design practice that offers integrated interdisciplinary expertise through the combination of grant-funded research initiatives, urban design experimentation, and small, site-specific built interventions.
