Woodbury University assistant professor, Héctor M. Pérez, presented at the 2016 Conferencia Lationamericana de Escuelas y Facultades de Arquitectura (CLEFA) in Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic.
CLEFA is considered one of the most important conferences of Latin American architecture schools for its wide list of participants and long existence. This international event has been held every two years since 1959, and it brings together academic leaders, professors, students as well as architectural and design professionals from all across the Americas.
Under the theme “From Academia Towards New Architectural Practices,” Pérez shared the work of The RED Office, a spinoff of the Master of Science in Architecture, Real Estate Development (MSArch RED) program at Woodbury University in San Diego, California. The RED Office is a unique real estate development firm that seeks to design, develop, and build meaningful infill projects throughout San Diego while proposing a more comprehensive and inclusive model of architectural practice.
The RED Office was founded by MSArch RED founder Ted Smith and architect, alumna Kate Meairs, and Héctor M. Pérez. You can find The RED Office on Facebook.
