Jorge Mastropietro, AIA, SCA
Principal and Founder
Jorge Mastropietro’s architectural roots are in his native Buenos Aires, Argentina, where he studied architecture for six years and later taught at a major university. He also opened his first practice there in 1992. Yet from an early age, Jorge also felt the need to explore architecture internationally, first in Europe where he received a master’s degree in urban design, and then in the United States where he worked for five years with Rafael Viñoly Architects. In 2007, Jorge decided to bring this experience to his own international firm and founded Jorge Mastropietro Architects Atelier (JMA), now a noted leader in architecture, urbanism, design-build and multifamily development.
With JMA, Jorge has been able to pursue his passion for a modern design aesthetic that is of its time, unique in presence and vision, and also respectful of alternatives. This aesthetic vision is guided by his belief in a path toward sustainability and a focus on eco-friendly design and awareness.
A registered architect both in Argentina and the United States, Jorge is a member of the Colegio de Arquitectos de Buenos Aires and the American Institute of Architects (AIA). His work is widely published and he speaks at events and authors articles on various topics, including low-energy passive design.
