Alejandro Giraldo

Associate AIA, LEED AP BD+C


"Partnerships are everything. Throughout each project, my primary goal is to forge human connections to understand the client, the team, the region, and the circumstance. I am always looking for ways to innovate and reframe challenges as opportunities so that we can bring new and fresh ideas to the table."

A native of Colombia, Giraldo has practiced architecture for over 25 years in South America and the United States. Being a connector—of people, ideas, projects, and communities—is his natural drive. Alejandro believes in the power of collaboration, and feels that the most successful projects involve strong partnerships with clients and consultants. His design work and market expertise have been recognized with various architectural awards and featured widely in publications. Alejandro has served as panelist and presenter at local, state, and national conferences. He has architectural-design teaching experience and is an active proponent of intentional mentorship programs, both within the firm and industry-wide.
