JUAN HERAS & ASSOCIATES: ARCHITECTURE + URBAN PLANNING
10 countries/ 20 years in the making/ Celebrating 100 projects in Latin America and the Caribbean from California/ Assoc. AIA 39193688
Since 1998, when I specialized in urban planning and first applied international sustainability policies in my assignments, I have devoted myself to expanding my passion for addressing development solutions for better equipped, resilient and more inclusive cities. For over 15 years I have been managing multidisciplinary projects focused on tackling poverty, exclusion and vulnerability. This responsibility has required me to coordinate large working teams, comprising local authorities and organizations, expert groups, private investors and the media. The main nature of these tasks has been the urban, rural and social development. Their management has engaged me in the study of legal local frameworks and existing conditions, the design and programming of developmental initiatives related to regional planning and climate change, the technical strengthening of key stakeholders, as well as the evaluation and quantitative analysis of these actions´ impacts.
