About the AuthorJulio Torres Santana
ElArchitecto Bronx, New York, U.S.A.
“I was the boy that would break the toys to see what
was inside,” Julio Torres remembers. So when a family
friend who was taking an architectural college course
came to his home in the Dominican Republic with an
illustration of a house, young Julio was amazed by his
first introduction to architecture.
“I think that’s where it started,” says Julio, a Cornell
University transfer student who graduated from
Morrisville State College (MSC) with an associate degree
in Architectural Studies & Design in May.
Julio moved to Bronx, N.Y. to live with an aunt at the age
of 17. That summer he took some English as a Second
Language classes before starting South Bronx High
School. Once he graduated, he decided to continue his
education at Morrisville State College.
