Ana Maria Torres established at architects in New York City in 2000. Ms. Torres is a licensed as an urban planner as well as an architect in both Spain and New York State. Before arriving in the United States, Ana Maria Torres was Associate Professor of Architectural Design at E. T. S. Architecture in Madrid.

As a partner at Balmori Associates in New Haven, CT, where she was a principal prior to establishing at architects, Ana Maria Torres was responsible for the landscape and urban design of Abandoibarra in Bilbao, Spain; the Performing Arts Center of Greater Miami, Florida; the Museum of Modern Art in Osaka, Japan; and the Petronas Towers Plaza, Kuala Lumpur. She was also a finalist in the World War II Memorial Competition in Washington, DC.

NYC-based female architect Ana Maria Torres and her firm, at architects, collaborated with FBMI (an initiative to empower underprivileged communities in Dubai) and put on a carpet installation at this past year's Dubai Design Week, titled "A Dream of Few". 

"This project is, above all, a collaboration formed by merging the weaving tradition and a subjective understanding of design and aesthetics. A conversation bloomed between a foundation and an architect; between foundation and weaver; between weaver and architect. Each carpet represents a story told through the rich tradition of the weaver, of the loom, of the instrument of weaving, of personal hand-weaving methods interwoven with the intentions, desires, and vision of the designer. This combination presents the ideal medium for an artist who wishes to cross boundaries and present a unique process of collaboration as her chosen practice."
