He has served as Project Architect for the Museum of Modern Art's (MoMA) Conservation Department, Whitney Museum of American Art's Conservation Studio (within Marcel Breuer's architectural icon), and the United States Institute of Peace in Washington, D.C. His experience on large–scale projects include high–rise residential buildings in Sri Lanka and Toronto, a Skypark linking three hotel towers at Singapore's Marina Bay Sands, and as Project Manager for the United Airlines Terminal at LAX.
Following his graduate studies, Juan worked at an architectural practice with in–house fabrication capabilities – developing custom details, prototypes, mock–ups and components that he directly built. This hands–on work experience provides him a deep understanding and sensitivity to careful architectural detailing and respect for the craftsperson.
Juan earned his Bachelor of Design with Highest Honors from the University of Florida and his Master's Degree in Architecture from the Graduate School of Design at Harvard. He studied a semester abroad at the Federal Technical University in Zurich (ETH).
Juan is a licensed Architect, a LEED accredited professional, and an active member of the Chicago Building Envelope Council.
