Miguel Quismondo, AIA, was born and raised in Spain. He attended the Polytechnic School in Madrid, where he graduated with a degree in architecture. A will to extend his understanding of architecture led him to travel to the United States, where he has carried out most of his career, first working for corporate America (Perkins+Will) and later collaborating with award-winning architect Alberto Campo Baeza in the design and construction of the Olnick Spanu House.

Over the past decade, he has worked for Nancy Olnick and Giorgio Spanu in several fields spanning from design, construction and management. Additionally, he had the opportunity to work with many international artists in order to help them implement and install site-specific projects in Garrison, NY. This led him to found MQ Architecture in 2013 and later to design and build Magazzino Italian Art in Cold Spring, NY. 

During twenty years of professional experience in the fields of architecture, construction and development, Miguel has continued his education; he holds a Master’s degree in Real Estate Development from Columbia University, and another in Construction Management from NYU. His work has been published in la Biennale di Venezia, Architectural Record, A+U, Domus and Casabella, among other magazines, and he has been recognized with several awards including an Honor in Architecture by AIA New York and the Dedalo Minosse International Prize.

Miguel Qusimondo and his team, Jacobo Mingornace and Juan Carlos Bragado, oversee all aspects of architectural design and architecture at Magazzino Italian Art. They also work closely with the facilities management group to assure the proper performance of the building and ground's systems. The team also helps in developing and implementing site-specific art installations and temporary shows.
