Felipe Sancho y Alicia Muñoz, Becas Arquia en Nueva York: Diller Scofidio + Renfro
Felipe Sancho Cervera y Alicia Muñoz Falder fueron galardonados con la Beca Arquia en las convocatorias de 2020 y 2021 respectivamente, convirtiéndose en los primeros becados en aventurarse a ‘cruzar el charco’ para tener una experiencia profesional en el estudio de Diller Scofidio + Renfro en Nueva York, Estados Unidos.
Asistidos por Fundación Arquia y Architect-US, el zaragozano y la malagueña comienzan a reflejar su testimonio en el blog de Architect-US, cuyo inicio ha estado marcado por la pandemia del COVID-19, que finalmente no ha impedido ni que ambos arranquen con ilusión su trabajo en el estudio de diseño interdisciplinar que integra arquitectura, artes visuales y artes escénicas, ni que comiencen a sentirse ciudadanos de la Gran Manzana.
«One random day there was a mail in my inbox that shocked me. Diller Scofidio + Renfro were interested in my profile and wanted to interview me! After the nerves, the interview, and almost two months the big news arrived, I was selected for the fellowship to work at DS+R!» 1
«As the days pass I feel I’m becoming more a New Yorker. Even if I’m always saying to my friends and family that it may sound like a cliché (I guess) but I have never had the feeling of being a stranger in New York. This city has so many things, ambiences, places, people, foods… that you can always find your place in it!» 2
«This time I want to tell you about a plan I made last January in Broadway. It is an event that takes place almost every day and always in the same theater (…) after seeing it in my smartphone screen so many times… I had the opportunity to… be part of the audience of… The Late Show with Stephen Colbert!» 3

«My expectations from this adventure are to learn, to grow-up personally and professionally, to experiment, to be part of an international network and for sure to leave my comfort zone. Of course it is a bit frightening but also really challenging! I choose New York as it is one of the worldwide centers of innovation, development and culture. On top of that, the studio Diller Scofidio + Renfro was one of the main references during my studies. It is an honor to be part of their team for one year.» 4
