Voices of HED - Maria Rodriguez
In recognition of the amazing people that make our firm exceptional, we asked our team some questions about their role and what inspires them and their work.

Today, we're recognizing Maria Rodriguez, an Architect in our San Francisco office.

What’s your favorite part of your job?

This is my first job doing architecture collaboration in the Unites States; a month ago HED gave me the opportunity to be part of their team. Hospitals became my second home when I was a child, now I feel fortunate to be able to collaborate in improvements for this area.

What do you wish people outside the industry understood about your job?

Architecture is more than drawings; it's a multitasking job where along with others, we solve problems in a creative way to improve our habitat and life style, paying attention to details and highlight the human being we are through our designs.

If you could give yourself 1 piece of advice on your first day at HED, what would it be?

We know more than yesterday but less than tomorrow , so keep moving forward and let experience surprise you.
