"Architecture must be true to itself, its land and its people.” –Francisco Mañosa
Alvin graduated from the University of the Philippines with a bachelor’s degree in Architecture. He is a licensed architect in the Philippines, with 15 years of work experience as an architect and master plumber. He moved to the U.S. last August 2021 to start his Master’s in Urban and Regional Planning at Portland State University as a scholar.
Landing his first job in the U.S. at Rolluda Architects in June 2022, Alvin is looking forward to learning more about planning and design standards as well as having an international perspective on the profession.
In his spare time, Alvin loves to hike, walk his dogs, and watch documentaries. When it comes to food, he enjoys Thai and Korean cuisines.
