The time we are facing now is a moment where borders and frontiers start to have a no meaning to the professionals; that are following the explosion and creation of new markets all around the world to fulfil their necessities and looking forward to developing their careers. Considering these it is inevitable to stop and take some steps back to see the full picture of what we are doing as architects and to question our self’s the way we are teaching, learning and apply the knowledge and abilities the practice provides. There have been many scholars that have discussed about the practice and the differences be-tween the academic environment and what the reality of the profession is; nevertheless, this dissertation focuses mainly on the studio of the work of Danna Cuff analyzed through the work experience of the author in Latin American (Mexico), Europe (Italy) and Middle East (Saudi Arabia).
