Antonio Perez Vazquez

ARQ, Assoc. AIA
Associate Principal, Monterrey

Growing up, Antonio’s father worked in construction and his mother with an airline–a combination that fueled Antonio’s interest in design and travel from a young age. Born and raised in Mexico, Antonio moved to Texas to complete high school, then traveled to Italy to further his education in architecture. While exploring the world, he realized the importance of making the community a better place by balancing architectural design with the needs and wants of different demographics.

Antonio collaborated as Vice Chair of AIA’s Latinos in Architecture and recently led our Dallas studio’s Diversity Committee. Has worked with the Regional Hispanic Contractors Association and supported the Monterrey chapter of the non-profit Architecture for Humanity. He enjoys giving back to the community and mentoring younger architects.

Antonio met his wife while studying in Italy. They now live in Monterrey and have two daughters. He considers himself a foodie and wine lover. Whenever he has spare time, it’s all about experiences – from traveling abroad to exploring new local restaurants with his family.

 

“I am proud of my country, language, and people. First a Mexican and then an architect, I want to help other Hispanics have the same opportunities that I have had.”
