Androsky Lugo is the CEO and founder of the Framing Futures Architectural Firm (FFAF) in Southern California. He has been a starting partner since 2019. Lugo manages the routine workflow and design procedures related to the numerous ongoing projects the company is managing at any given time in his capacity as founding partner. Using abilities founded in the basics of contemporary architectural engineering, he collaborates with the executive team of board members who introduce new competent architects to plan, coordinate, and design cutting-edge commercial and public projects for clients.
Androsky worked as the Senior Architect for various prestigious companies, including Parkins and Rhodon in New York and Fentrell Architects in San Francisco, before becoming a founding partner of FFAF. Before 2009, Lugo worked with Macaby and Roy for five years as the Senior Architectural Design Strategist before becoming the Senior Architect in 2008. After completing an internship with the business, Lugo held the prestigious position of Project Architect in Albany, New York, for a business that his father had started in 1990. Lugo took several occupations before formally joining his father's business in 2002, including working as a business consultant for a small business development company in New York City.
He graduated with a bachelor's in business administration from the University of Pennsylvania in 2000; he later changed his mind and enrolled at Cornell University to pursue a master's in architecture. He completed the program in 2002 with distinction before earning additional qualifications in environmental systems and building science and technology. Lugo returned to Cornell University in 2003 to finish studying environmentally friendly architecture and design.
Lugo has had the chance to participate in many high-calibre architectural projects during his two-decade career. He collaborated closely with the San Francisco Historic Buildings Committee in 2012 to design and plan improvements for several public service venues. The Hagman's Group of New York City hired Lugo in 2015 to design the first building made entirely of recycled and sustainable materials. Lugo worked tirelessly with the neighbourhood urban development team to build affordable housing at Parkins and Rhodon. He was the principal designer for a complete shopping complex and contributed to creating blueprints for a multi-story place of worship.
Though architectural design has always been at the core of Lugo's profession, over the past ten years, environmental protection through sustainable architectural design has become his main priority. He is respected in a variety of areas for his ability to create architectural designs that are environmentally friendly. Lugo has promoted a renewed understanding of safeguarding natural habitats and water systems and creating structures harmoniously integrating and cooperating with nature.
When given a chance, Androsky Lugo donates his time to various charities, such as Homes for Veterans, Habitat for Humanity, and The Make It Right at Home Foundation. To raise awareness among architects, construction businesses, and structural engineers about the value of green efforts in the building industry, Lugo founded the Architecture and Earth Awareness Foundation in 2015. To date, the business has aided in introducing sustainable concepts to more than 400 significant construction projects worldwide. Lugo routinely participates in fundraising activities and marketing initiatives because he is passionate about helping efforts to safeguard the environment.
Over the past few years, Lugo has garnered numerous awards for his pro bono and charitable contributions. He received numerous awards, including the Voice of Reason award from the Green Initiative Climate Council and recognition as the organization's top donor, Homes for Veterans. Lugo was a Pritzker Architecture Prize nominee for 2019. In addition, he was a nominee for the 2020 Architecture Master's Prize and was awarded the prize for Architectural Visionary in the first few months of 2021.
Androsky enjoys spending time in the environment, fishing, and visiting less well-known nations to experience their cultures. He works hard at developing projects that combine green thinking and structural vision. His favourite activity is testing his survival skills in the country's hilly regions with nothing more than a fishing pole and a rucksack. Lugo claims that his family—his wife of 18 years, Genavieve, two small sons, three Alaskan Malamutes, and a goldfish named Lou—is his greatest achievement, not his work as an architect.
