Meet Carlos Hernandez, AIA, NOMA, LEED AP, CDT, ICC Member. In Carlos’s close to 25 years’ experience in the architecture field, he has worked on several award winning projects, in a variety of scales and typologies, including Commercial Adaptive Reuse, Historic Preservation, Public Institutional, and Academic Housing, Libraries, & Performing Arts projects. Carlos has always been interested in the social connections architecture strengthens within communities, and how architecture may reinforce those community values and ideas, whilst elevating everyday user experiences in the context of a larger design framework down to the details level. Carlos has worked in architecture firms that practice both locally and nationally and has enjoyed the breadth of experience that range offers professionally. Carlos has developed a strength in elevating architectural outcomes through the role technical discipline plays in the design process both to support and execute a design vision and to explore development opportunities at the details scale. With half his career spent in Construction Administration he has fostered a spirit of collaboration, and promotes leadership skills as essential to preserve design integrity during the key phase of construction. He is currently RDC’s Director of Technical Management where he oversees firm-wide technical initiatives and Quality Management, and enjoys opportunities to mentor staff. As a member of the AIA LBSB Chapter he is excited to work on pathways and advocacy for the profession and to aid in development/engagement opportunities with the next generation of architects. In the evolution of his architectural career Carlos has additionally developed professional skill sets in the craft of Architectural Photography/Cinematography.
