Luis Alberto López Chavero RA
Associate / Design Architect
Early in life, Luis Alberto learned the influence culture can have on design. Born and raised in Mexico City (CDMX), he attended international schools where he developed formative friendships with people from Brazil, Egypt, Italy, Korea, Malaysia and the United States that opened his mind to different perspectives. That, combined with a fascination of how mankind evolved from living in caves to creating different kinds of elaborate residences around the world, led to his interest in architecture.
After amassing a portfolio covering a wide variety of commercial market sectors and project types, Luis Alberto joined Page in the firm’s CDMX office as a design architect. He was attracted by Page’s core values of creativity, commitment and collaboration. The first two characteristics had already helped him reach his goal of becoming a licensed architect; several years of experience on large, complex commercial projects taught him the value of collaboration on projects, particularly between architects and contractors.
He brings additional experience in visualization, production, coordination and client management gained from his work on Nuevo Aeropuerto Internacional de la Ciudad de Mexico, the busiest in Latin America, as well as retail projects on Via Vallejo in Mexico City and soccer stadiums, hotels, offices, industrial offices and master plans. Luis Alberto is passionate about identifying opportunities to elevate sustainability in projects, and becoming an expert in construction practices so he can better design for and collaborate with contractors.
Prior to joining Page, Luis Alberto was most recently with FR-EE (Fernando Romero Enterprise) and Foster + Partners where he played a key role in client relations. There, he also led value engineering exercises on key projects to ensure they were delivered on time and within budget. Before that, he spent several years at HKS Architects in their Mexico City office working on a variety of projects. He served as BIM Manager for projects such as a 5,000-key hotel in Costa Bavaro, Dominican Republic.
Luis Alberto began his professional career at a boutique commercial firm near Universidad Iberoamericana Ciudad de México, where he earned his Bachelor’s in Architecture. He enjoys calling CDMX his home base, and relying on the airport on which he worked to reach new project locations.
