Luis has more than 15 years’ experience designing and delivering architectural and urban development projects including low-cost housing schemes, strategic urban plans, masterplans, transit-oriented development, and post-disaster and post-war reconstruction programmes. This has involved planning new settlements and construction of schools, community centres, public spaces, and evacuation centres.
He has worked on large-scale urban planning and urban regeneration, informal settlements upgrading, and construction of affordable housing. Before joining IMC in 2019, Luis co-led a plan for the post-conflict reconstruction of a city in Somalia and worked on the implementation of a post-disaster reconstruction programme in Sri-Lanka following the 2016 landslides. He has also worked extensively as urban designer and project coordinator (construction) in the UK.
