Cari is a woman of many influences. A Puerto Rican from New York, she got her start in the creative world by studying illustration and fine arts at the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT). Upon graduation, she set up her studio in Brooklyn and began exhibiting her work.
Her artistic approach is initiated by an in-depth research work, reflecting her person, the mode of expression becoming only secondary. Working in a team stimulates her, she sees it as a way to enrich and combine different skills. Cari is well versed in the architecture of Rem Koolhaas and Richard Buckminster Fuller or the conceptual art of Lygia Clark, and is sensitive to utopian and contemporary works.
A sensitivity to architectural theories that she puts into practice by designing her own wooden house, which has become her creative cell.
She has been living in Marseille for 15 years and loves the ambivalence of this city, which is both culturally very connected and very connected to nature. At ARCHIK, she discovers the permeability between architecture, design and real estate and enjoys participating in a family’s life project by accompanying them with her wise advice.
