Eurico’s family wanted him to be a doctor. He—inspired by the buildings his mother pointed out on drives around his home city of São Paulo—wanted to try architecture. He applied to medical school and architecture school and got into both. Luckily, architecture courses started first. It took him less than a week to know he’d found his calling.
Eurico is determined to build better cities. Uninterested in spectacle, he wants excellence. He appreciates the steady, behind-the-scenes work driven by a repeated refrain: Is this project all it can be? He pushes the design industry to ask this question, too, whether as a contributing editor to Texas Architect, board member at the Dallas Architecture Forum, or city advocate appointed to the Urban Design Peer Review Panel of the City of Dallas, to name only a few of his roles.
