“In my work in architecture, I am often inspired by the interactions between people and place. Each time a person walks, talks, and engages with spaces and the people around them, they leave a mark in time.
LP is the home “away from home” every neighborhood wishes they had—a beacon of empathy and understanding.”
Jaime Torres is Founder and Principal of Canopy/ Architecture + Design LLC. His passion for people, places and the built environment developed from living in two densely populated cities – Mexico City and Chicago. Jaime is the lead architect of Latinos Progresando’s most inspiring project to date: our very own community center! It has been a pleasure to work with Jaime and his team to bring our vision to life, and we’re honored to recognize him as part of our 21st anniversary celebration.
