Senior Associate
Seattle, WA

Rico Quirindongo, AIA, is an architect with DLR Group and a born-and-raised Seattleite who focuses his work on community design, social sustainability, and clients serving the public good. He works with local organizations to have a greater positive influence in their own neighborhoods through design. Rico believes that existing buildings provide a rich context for our daily lives and that preservation and adaptive reuse are the ultimate expression of environmentally responsible design and critical to the development of sustainable, balanced communities for all. Rico is Past President of the American Institute of Architects Seattle Chapter.  He sat on the AIA+2030 national steering committee, a committee that has seen to it that 24 cities nationally are providing curriculum to help design teams and owners meet the 2030 Challenge: reduction of energy consumption and carbon footprint through better design, construction, and more responsible building operations.  Rico was recognized in 2011 by the American Institute of Architects as a Citizen Architect on the Move and was awarded the AIA Seattle Young Architect Award in 2014. As a board member of the Pike Place Market Preservation and Development Authority, Rico currently chairs the MarketFront Committee connecting Pike Place Market to the Seattle Waterfront through the development of new market space, affordable housing, and a public plaza with panoramic views of the Puget Sound.
