As a dual-trained multi-faceted designer and architect, Emmanuel R. Juan is in charge of the firm's creative direction, technology and production. He has created the firm's brand and website and develops marketing and publicity for seventy2architects. Mr. Juan is the principal designer, overseeing all facets of residential and commercial projects. He also runs the firm's in-office operations and works closely with consulting engineers to coordinate civil, landscape, electrical, mechanical and structural concepts.
Prior to co-founding seventy2architects in 2005, Emmanuel worked for several years designing trade-show exhibits for multinational corporations including Lucent Technologies, American Express, and Schindler Elevator. In 2003, he made the decision to return to the Architecture industry. After an inspired period at Bogdanow Partners Architects, in Manhattan, he joined ROART, a multidisciplinary architecture studio focused on unique projects, ranging from pre-schools to urban designed structures. Emmanuel's interest in large-scale urban construction led him to Ismael Leyva Architects, where he has worked on projects ranging from low-rise residential to a 580,000 SF high-rise condominium tower, The Century, in Los Angeles, California.
Emmanuel studied at State University of New York at Buffalo for his Bachelor of Professional Studies in Architecture and went on to obtain his Master of Industrial Design at Pratt Institute. He is LEED AP (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) and is a member of the AIA: American Institute of Architects.
He is a registered Architect in the State of New York. In his spare time Emmanuel mentors high school students interested in a career in architecture or design, and participates in mountain bike racing, century road cycling tours throughout Connecticut and New York, and is a member of Transportation Alternatives in New York City.
