Cristobal Correa joined Buro Happold in 1998. A willingness to cross borders and boundaries to satisfy his interest in state-of-the-art structural engineering has led him to design tension structures, facades, art installations, long span structures, and temporary buildings as well as more traditional buildings of concrete and steel. In the process he has acquired experience working collaboratively with architects building in East and South East Asia, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East and the United States.
As project director, he assures the quality and timeliness of the work produced, and is responsible for managing teams of engineers at Buro Happold’s New York office. Cristobal is also a professor at Pratt Institute and has previously served as a guest critic at a number of universities, including Columbia, Cornell, Harvard, Parson’s School of Design, Princeton, University of Pennsylvania and Yale.
