pavel-shemaykinPatricia Ernst studied Architecture at the University of Buenos Aires. While completing her degree, she interned with her professors at such prestigious Buenos Aires architecture firms as Aída Daitch and Roque Frangella. After completing college, she moved to Patagonia where she designed and built a home for her family while working in local architectural bureaus.

In 2003 when the opportunity arose to collaborate with WSDG in the design of the Chilean Post production facility Atómica, Patricia, who has studied piano and guitar since she was a child, immediately saw the opportunity to combine her two passions: music and architecture, Fully bilingual in English and Spanish, she soon began coordinating production and design work between the WSDG NY and Latin offices for projects around the world.

Today, Patricia leads the architectural production of the WSDG Latin office in Buenos Aires, and is the Senior Project Manager for all WSDG Latin projects.

She loves traveling and especially visiting construction sites. For Patricia, “nothing is more satisfying than seeing the project become a space you can work and live in.”
