George Sánchez-Calderón received his MFA from the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) in 1995 and his BFA from Florida International University (FIU) in 1993. Sánchez-Calderón produced a true-scale recreation of Le Corbusier’s Villa Savoye beneath Florida Interstate I-95 during the first Art Basel Miami Beach in 2002.
