Carlos E. Betancourt, AIA is recognized as one of Puerto Rico's leading figures in the field of architecture. His projects range from large-scale public commissions to small, personal houses, rich in design detail and spatial articulation. For the past thirty years, Betancourt has established a large body of work whose quality has been recognized with regional and local awards for design excellence. This excellence, beyond his skills as a designer, stems from his belief and commitment to the role of architecture as an integral part of local culture, as a vital component in the structure of the cities and towns in our region, and as a positive force in the community.
Betancourt’s designs are anchored by a keen sense of form, material and tectonics that transcend their regional references. His buildings are a rich play of light and shade, color, and texture, which reflect his Caribbean cultural context articulated through a contemporary design vocabulary. The carefully crafted spatial sequences of his projects heighten people's experience of his architecture.
