Head of Playful City at LabCDMX.
Leticia currently works at LabCDMX – the civic innovation and urban creativity government think tank– as Head of #PlayfulCity, a research and experimentation area focused on understanding how play and playfulness can be active tools for city design and planning. Prior to be part of the Lab’s team she was an Associate Lecturer at UDLAP and UNARTE, teaching BA and MA Interior Architecture.
Her curiosity and creativity have taken her to explore the boundaries between architecture, design and art, and recently their impact on public policy, and has been working as an experience designer and strategist for over 6 years. Her creative drive comes from how the dialogue between people and places metamorphose within different cultures and how might we emulate or alter behaviours through environments’ design.
She has a background in Architecture from UDLAP (Mexico) and Politecnico di Torino (Italy), as well as an MA in Narrative Environments from Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design (UK). Her work focuses on research, development, design and production of creative projects, like urban installations, exhibitions, services and strategies.
