Originally from Colombia, Diego brings a different cultural perspective to Perkins&Will projects. His early life experiences encouraged him to find ways to help within his community and seek ways in which he could improve the built environment.
Diego graduated from Architecture School in South America and later pursued a Master’s degree in Architecture in the US. Upon graduation, he gained experience working as an intern with a small firm in Houston that was later acquired by Perkins&Will. He now serves on the leadership team of the Houston Studio.
Diego believes that a successful work philosophy is taking ownership of what you do and approaching every task with diligence. Diego’s passion is architecture; he could not see himself doing anything else professionally, but being a good father and husband is his number one priority.
