She works privately, with institutions and with public administrations on projects of varying scale and complexity.

Facing challenging urban environments, Jocelyn works, as required, with specialists - engineers, landscape architects, lighting and graphic designers and others. She fully exploits the technical, social, environmental, aesthetic and economic demands of architecture.

As an independent practitioner, her work ranges from residential projects in New York State and Chile to installations such as MoMA’s Young Architects Program COSMO (with Offpolinn, 2015) - exhibited at MoMA PS1. Current projects under construction include the New Lorenteggio Library in Milan (with Team BLO, to be completed in 2026) and private comissions in Chile.

Jocelyn has won awards from the Arts Council and the British Council in the UK, the municipality of Milan, Columbia University in New York and the Ministry of Culture in Chile. Her work has been published in the periodicals AV, ARQ and Afasia and exhibited in the Pinakothek der Moderne in Munich. She has served on the jury of several design competitions, has lectured internationally and taught at the Technische Universität Darmstadt, Columbia University, Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile, XJTLU Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University and the University of Liverpool, where she is a lecturer.
