Student
Lynced Torres

Masters of Architecture Candidate

Lynced is an M. Arch student born and raised in the border town of Eagle Pass, Texas. She received her Bachelor's of Science in Architecture at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas, where her affinity and sensibilities towards design took root. Given the need to explore the world beyond even one as vast as Texas, she is currently undergoing her graduate studies at MIT. Over the last few years, her curiosities have ranged from understanding systems of growth both biological and urban to developing an architecture valued on supporting the figures both human and nonhuman that have been marginalized over time. She spent summers 2018 and 2019-Jan. 2020 conducting research work and interning at KVA Architects with Professor Sheila Kennedy in the Boston area. Some of her joys include a reading, plants, painting, and a good karaoke session.
