Let’s build something
meaningful together

Hi, I’m Daniel Rincón de la Vega, ESADE MBA, PhD architect, award-winning researcher & writer. I’m a learner, a team player and a team leader. I am passionate about architecture, real estate and marketing. I love working on meaningful projects with and for talented people. 

I have a long-established history of successfully working in different areas of the luxury industry, from residential to retail. I work and have worked for brands like Bottega Veneta, Valentino, Gucci and Stella McCartney, have been involved in many luxury housing projects, and finished my PhD in 2010 about Madrid’s luxury flats. Later, in 2016, part of it became the award-winning book “Madrid luxury flats since 1900” (Spanish “La vivienda de lujo en Madrid desde 1900”). Runner-up in Barcelona’s FAD awards, winner of Madrid Architects’ Institute COAM prize and winner of Spanish Bienal de Arquitectura prize, the tome became an immediate success and has been highly praised.

In 2016 I became part of the Advisory Board of Arquigest, the society in charge of Arquia Bank’s investment funds. Recently I have been promoted from that position to member of the Executive Board of Arquia Bank. It is a company that focuses on business and corporate clients, on providing made-to-measure solutions for its customers. Arquia Bank also has a clear social mission and promotes projects of cultural, social and educational nature. 

Elected member of the Executive Board of Málaga’s Architects’ Institute. Reelected in 2015 for a second and last term, I contributed to achieve the organization’s objectives in the cultural & promotion areas. Along with my team and thanks to the support of many colleagues, we managed to turn the Architecture Week into an event of social relevance, established a fluent collaboration with corporations and institutions and organized actions aimed at spreading our work in professional circles. We tried to establish a position of the Institute as an authority before civil society, in defense of our heritage, claiming the role of women, or drawing new lines of research and innovation. To sum up, we brought architecture closer to society.
