Rick Lopez has been part of the faculty at U-SoA for over a decade, teaching drawing courses, design studios, and preservation electives for both undergrads and grads.  Recently he has been working with the Center for Computational Sciences to integrate emerging technologies to traditional methods of documenting historic structures.  He has also participated in various travel abroad programs and has helped shape the school’s “U-Serve” Day as part of his work at the CUCD, the school’s community engagement arm.

He and his wife, Xuan Florez, founded Florez Lopez Architects in 2009 where they engage a range of projects from the custom design of private residences to consultation on public/private urban design interventions.  They are committed to preserving traditions of architecture, urbanism, and culture as they relate to region and climate, while adapting them to continually evolving contexts.
