Firm Profile: The firm Christian de Groote Associated Architects was founded in 1967, on ending de Groote's former association with architect Emilio Duhart. Born in Chile in 1931, De Groote lived part of his youth in Cuba, and part in Mexico, where he graduated from high school. He studied Architecture at the Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile (the country's most reputed Catholic university) where he took his degree in 1958 with the highest grade. Later on, he obtained a scholarship from the Fulbright Foundation and the U.S. State Department, taking postgraduate studies at M.I.T., in Chicago, and at the University of California in Berkeley.
Starting on 19678, de Groote established his own office, designing many works for industrial and mining concerns, offices, newspapers, and banks, creating buildings, malls, exhibition pavilions, social housing, and graphic design. Yet a very important proportion of his work has been devoted to private houses, de Groote having built more than 150 houses to date.
