Edgar Gabaldon

Space Designer

Influences: Although I do admire every country for their own diversity and individuality, my design influence mainly comes from my Mexican culture. I love the colors, the textures, the music, and the food. Design is not just about the color palette of an interior or exterior of a space, it’s about the experience. It’s a way of life.

People: Ricardo Legorreta, Santiago Calatrava, Richard Meier, Frank Lloyd Wright, Thom Mayne, & Louis Kahn

Interests: I can’t say that my only interests are architecture and design, but then I would be lying. The more I see, the more I learn, the more I want. I want to see new ideas, concepts, what’s the next big thing, but seeing your own idea come to life, that’s just an incredible moment. I do enjoy running and listening to music. They both help me liberate my mind. Last but not least, there’s brunching. Nothing like grabbing a few mimosas, great food, & enjoying it with friends and family.
