2022 Ones to Watch: Alvaro Ribeiro, AIA, Senior Architect at Margulies Perruzzi

June 10, 2022 - Spotlights

What does it take to succeed in your specific industry? To succeed in the world of architecture, good communication and good partnerships are key. A thoughtful project team includes the general contractor, architects, engineers, and owner’s representatives, and, of course, a good client. This team is only as strong as its weakest link. Each of these roles needs the other to be balanced to be truly successful. When any one of these entities exudes more influence than the other, a project will fall far short of what it truly could be if everyone pulled together.

What led you to your current profession? I’ve always believed that our physical environment curates our experiences and that people react, whether subconsciously, consciously, or both, to the built environment around them. Their behavior is deeply influenced by it in ways not fully understood. Architects, builders, and developers are challenged with creating our world and doing so in a responsible, meaningful way. This responsibility is very intriguing and fun to be a part of as an architect.
