Sandra Barclay is co-founder of Lima architecture studio Barclay & Crousse.
After graduating from Diego Portales University, Barclay went on to found Barclay & Crousse Architecture with partner Jean Pierre Crousse in Paris in 1994. The studio later relocated to Peru in 2006.
Barclay & Crousse has been recognised internationally; the multi award-winning studio was a recipient of the Latin America Prize in 2013, followed by the Peruvian National Prize of Architecture in 2014 and again in 2018.
Over the last decade, Barclay & Crousse has built multiple projects in Peru, including Edificio E at the Universidad de Piura, which was awarded the Mies Crown Hall Americas Prize in 2018. Further projects include Casa C3, a clifftop villa in the Peruvian desert, and Peru’s pavilion at Venice Architecture Biennale 2016, which received a special mention.
In 2000 Barclay became a recipient of the French Académie d’Architecture Fellowship and Fulbright Foundation. In 2006, she became a professor at Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú.
