Orlando Matta - President
Int'l Assoc. AIA

We are very proud and privileged to have Mr. Orlando Matta as part of our team. Mr. Matta and his family settled in the USA in 2000 after a very remarkable and distinctive career over a span of 30 years in Colombia where his name and seal appears on hundreds of very significant and highly proclaimed projects throughout the country. Some of these projects were featured in the PROA Journal of Colombian Architecture and the Colombian newspaper, El Tiempo and some of them won him first place and honorable mention awards.

Experience:

Mr. Matta's most stunning achievement is the urban and architectural design of a complete city on 36,000 acres. The Colombian City of Armero with a population of 30,000 was destroyed by the volcanic eruption of the Nevado del Ruiz on November 13, 1985. The government undertook the building of various little cities to help the coffee, cotton and vegetable farmers in the region and one of these was The City of Albania. Mr. Matta's company was awarded the "Albania" Citadel project, as it was called, and he personally took control of it and not only designed the entire city but also completed the construction documents for it. He traveled to Brasil to study the development of a union type city and designed schools, church, city hall, sports and recreation parks, a plaza and housing communities around the packaging and distribution facilities for the farmers. He paid particular attention to giving it both the vibrancy of rebirth and the serenity it needed after the shock of nature's fury. It is an amazing achievement to design and produce an entire city and one that very few can put claim to.
