Diego Rozo

Associate Principal, Science and Technology, Houston

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.

“Don’t do the work just to get it done. Do it because you care about it. Take pride in the project, the client and the firm and your team.”
Houston Strong

In 2017, Diego lost his home due to Hurricane Harvey flooding and was forced to rebuild. One of his greatest challenges in the rebuild process was filling the roles of an Owner, Architect and Builder. Diego had to switch hats daily and with the help of his family, friends, neighbors and colleagues, he and his family were able to move back home in July of 2019. He continues to help others in his community that are still not back in their homes.
