Christina Sanchez – Associate, Architecture at Board & Vellum

Christina Sanchez

Associate, Architecture

Born and raised in Denver, CO, Christina grew up in awe of the beauty of nature and with a predisposition for quiet moments in the comforts of home. Curious from the start, she fed her imagination on books, video games, and traveling extensively throughout the United States with her family.

In the spring of 2020, Christina graduated from Kansas State University with a Master of Architecture. There, her eyes were opened to the complex interconnectivity between people, place, and context, which expanded her interests beyond the physical realm and into the psychology of architecture and its influence on how people experience space. Biophilia, phenomenology, and designing for diversity continue to inspire her, as does her view of architecture as a story established through the heritage and environment of its surroundings and written through the experiences of those who interact with it.

Through her studies and travels, she has become increasingly interested in how architecture can actively impact and improve lives as a catalyst for social and environmental change, and, at school, was involved in multiple clubs, such as the student branches of the National Organization for Minority Architects (NOMA) and the United States Green Building Council (USGBC).

An introvert through and through, Christina still spends most of her time outside of work curled around a good book, exploring fantasy worlds through video games, or listening to good music and getting lost in a daydream. She also enjoys translating her love for storytelling into photography, cooking, and playing the piano.

She is excited to return to the Pacific Northwest and the complex social and natural environments accommodated by Seattle and its surroundings. She maintains an interest in all different types of projects and is eager to face the challenges of these changing times to see what new curiosities the future may hold.
