A. Alberto Lugo received his Bachelor of Business from the University of Pennsylvania in 2000. However, he decided to pursue a career in architecture. He obtained his Master of Architecture degree from Cornell University in 2002 and received additional designations in Building Science and Technology and Environmental Systems. In 2003, he returned to Cornell to further his education in environmentally-conscious building and design. FFAF has offices in Greenwich, CT, White Plains, NY, and Newark, NJ.
With over two decades of experience in architecture, he has been involved in several noteworthy projects. In 2012, he collaborated with the San Francisco Historic Buildings Committee to plan and design renovations for public service spaces. In 2015, he was commissioned by the Hagman's Group of NYC to design the first structure constructed entirely from sustainable and recycled materials. During his tenure at Parkins and Rhodon, he served as the lead designer for an entire shopping center, contributed to drafting plans for a multi-story house of worship, and worked closely with the local urban development team to design affordable housing.
Alberto's dedication to the community extends to the dynamic regions of Connecticut and New Jersey, where he selflessly offers his pro-bono services to esteemed organizations such as Habitat for Humanity, Homes for Veterans, and The Make It Right at Home Foundation. In 2015, he took a pivotal step by founding the Architecture and Earth Awareness Foundation, a noble initiative to raise awareness among architects, construction companies, and structural engineers about the paramount significance of integrating green initiatives into the building industry. Through this foundation, A. Alberto strives to foster a greater understanding and appreciation for sustainable practices, ultimately contributing to a more environmentally conscious and responsible architectural landscape.
