EQUITY. DIVERSITY. INCLUSION:

Meet AIA New Jersey Member

Manuel Pereiras, AIA

“Much of the construction work force is Hispanic and often English is their second and weaker language.   There is a strong sense of camaraderie, mutual respect and most of all a feeling of pride when a crew realizes the architect speaks their language.   The bond goes beyond communication.  It speaks to a person’s dignity.

My heritage is an integral part of who I am and takes a prominent role in my practice.  It’s present in the way I see the word, the way I design, and the way I manage my office.   Even the sign on my wall says ARQUITECTO.

An important aspect of equality is having your ethnicity represented in leading members of the community.”

Manuel Pereiras, AIA
