CEO and Founder of Framing Futures Architectural Firm (FFAF)

About Me

Androsky Lugo (A. Alberto Lugo) is a celebrated architect, CEO, and founder of Framing Futures Architectural Firm (FFAF) based in Southern California. Established in 2019, FFAF is a leading firm that designs cutting-edge commercial and public structures for clients. As the founding partner, Lugo oversees the everyday workflow and design processes, working closely with the executive board and a team of skilled architects to deliver top-quality projects. Lugo has over two decades of experience in architectural design, having worked for several leading firms before founding FFAF. FFAF currently has offices in Greenwich, CT, White Plains, NY and Newark, NJ. He spent ten years as a Senior Architect, working with some top firms, including Parkins and Rhodon in New York and Fentrell Architects in San Francisco. Lugo's expertise in architectural engineering and design is rooted in the fundamentals of modern architectural engineering.

Androsky obtained his Bachelor of Business degree from the University of Pennsylvania in 2000 and later transitioned to Cornell University to pursue his Master of Architecture degree. He graduated with distinction from the program in 2002 before obtaining further designations in Building Science and Technology and Environmental Systems. He returned to Cornell in 2003 to focus on environmentally-conscious building and design. Throughout his career, Lugo has had the opportunity to work on various top-level architectural projects. He was contracted by the San Francisco Historic Buildings Committee in 2012 to plan and design renovations for several public service spaces. In 2015, he was hired by the Hagman's Group of NYC to design the first structure built entirely out of sustainable and recycled materials. While Lugo's career has always centered around architectural design, his primary focus has been on environmental protection through sustainable architectural design. 

When it comes to offering his services without charge, Lugo seizes the opportunity to lend a helping hand to numerous organizations. He extends his philanthropic efforts to Habitat for Humanity, Homes for Veterans, and The Make It Right at Home Foundation. One notable achievement by Lugo was the establishment of the Architecture and Earth Awareness foundation back in 2015. This commendable initiative aims to raise awareness among architects, construction companies, and structural engineers regarding the indispensable role of green initiatives in the building industry. To date, their impact has been far-reaching, having influenced over 400 large-scale building projects worldwide.

Lugo's unwavering commitment to the environment is evidenced by his active involvement in supporting climate protection endeavors. He wholeheartedly participates in fundraising events and fervently promotes the cause. His dedication has garnered numerous accolades in recent years. Notably, Lugo was acknowledged as the foremost contributor to the Homes for Veterans organization, a testament to his selfless contributions. Moreover, he was honored with the prestigious Voice of Reason award by the esteemed Green Initiative Climate Council. These acknowledgments serve as a testament to his unwavering dedication.

In 2019, Lugo's exceptional contributions earned him a nomination for the renowned Pritzker Architecture Prize. The following year, his remarkable work led to another nomination, this time for the Architecture Master's Prize. It was in 2021, early in the year, that Lugo's visionary approach to architecture was recognized, and he triumphed as the recipient of the Architectural Visionary Prize. These commendations solidify Lugo's status as an architectural trailblazer.

When Lugo isn't engrossed in designing structures that seamlessly integrate eco-friendly concepts with innovative vision, he finds solace in nature's embrace. He relishes the tranquility of the wilderness, often indulging in fishing excursions and embarking on adventures to lesser-explored countries to immerse himself in diverse cultures. His ultimate passion lies in challenging his survival skills in the country's majestic mountainous regions, armed with nothing but a fishing pole and a backpack. Androsky Lugo firmly believes that his most significant achievement surpasses his illustrious career as an architect. It is his loving family that truly brings him joy—a devoted wife, Genavieve, who has been his rock for the past 18 years, their two young sons who fill their lives with laughter, three loyal Alaskan Malamutes, and a cherished goldfish named Lou.
