Marco Urieta-Leon, AIA, NCARB, Associate DBIA
Project Architect

Shaping communities while impacting the natural and built environment, Marco is highly invested in the success of his projects and takes his responsibility as an architect seriously. He thrives on problem-solving and coordinating with interdisciplinary teams to ensure a project is delivered on time and as expected.

Marco weaves his experience with urban planning—from smart growth to new urbanism principles—into his design approach, thinking about the holistic effects buildings have on their surroundings. With a primary focus on multifamily developments, he is interested in better understanding how building enclosure systems enhance longevity and performance.

A fun fact about Marco: he picked up a guitar as a hobby, and he has writing credits for a published song.
