About A. Alberto Lugo

When he has the opportunity, A. Alberto Lugo volunteers his pro-bono services to organizations like Habitat for Humanity, Homes for Veterans, and The Make It Right at Home Foundation, positively impacting communities across Connecticut and New Jersey. In 2015, he established the Architecture and Earth Awareness Foundation, which aims to raise awareness among architects, construction companies, and structural engineers about the importance of green initiatives in the building industry. Alberto's dedication has helped spread sustainable ideas worldwide to more than 400 large-scale building projects. He also actively supports climate protection efforts and frequently participates in fundraising and promotional activities.

For his philanthropic and pro-bono contributions, he has been recognized with numerous awards and accolades in recent years. He was honoured as the top contributor to the Homes for Veterans organization and received the esteemed Voice of Reason award from the Green Initiative Climate Council. His outstanding architectural achievements led to nominations for prestigious prizes, including the Pritzker Architecture Prize in 2019 and the Architecture Master's Prize in 2020, where he ultimately won the award for Architectural Visionary in early 2021.

When not immersed in designing structures that blend green ideas with visionary architecture, he finds solace in the wilderness, fishing and embarking on journeys to lesser-known countries to explore their unique cultures. He finds fulfilment in challenging his survival skills with only a fishing pole and a backpack in the country's mountainous regions. Despite his remarkable career, Alberto humbly states that his greatest accomplishment lies in his loving family, which includes his wife Genevieve of 18 years, two young sons, three Alaskan Malamutes, and a goldfish named Lou.
