MIRIAM SALAS

Miriam moved to New Orleans for the first time in 1996 from Caracas, Venezuela when she was awarded the Koch Fellowship to attend Tulane University. She has since tried to move away twice, but New Orleans seems to keep pulling her back. Setting roots from her latest transplant, she has been deeply involved with the New Orleans design community and the redevelopment of the city.

A skilled communicator, Miriam has successfully collaborated with clients and consultants and is directly responsible for the successful management and completion of over $200,000,000 in new and renovated facilities. In 2008, Miriam was appointed Studio Director of Campo Architects and has been instrumental in encouraging and mentoring young professionals through her involvement with Tulane University, the AIA New Orleans chapter of Women in Architecture, as a Young Architects Forum Co-Chair, and as a US Green Building Council Member.

Miriam enjoys living Uptown where she is close to the famous Tipitina’s music venue and has a front row spot along the Mardi Gras parade routes. She likes to play hostess and is famous for her Sangria.
