Eduardo Guerrero received his professional architecture degree from the University The Republic in Santiago Chile and earned a Master of Urban Design degree from the University of California, Berkeley. Before joining the faculty at the University of Arizona, Eduardo practiced architecture and urban design in Chile and in California. Eduardo has designed and built hundreds of social housing units in the Atacama Desert region, designed prototypical houses for Habitat for Humanity, and selected properties for future housing developments. In addition, Eduardo has overseen neighborhood revitalization efforts in Santiago for the Ministry of Housing and Urban Planning and has also worked as an urban design consultant for firms in California in both rural and urban areas. As a registered architect (in Chile) and urban designer, Eduardo’s professional and research interests include both disciplinary perspectives. Eduardo is drawn to design problems that engage architecture, urban design, climate, and culture, and is especially interested in the seen and unseen edges that define boundaries between urban, rural, agricultural, industrial, natural and social settings.


When Eduardo is not teaching architectural design at the University of Arizona or designing professionally, he is serving on the "Public Art and Community Design committee" for the Arts foundation for Tucson and southern Arizona or at the "Bike and Pedestrian Plan Committee" for the Pima Association of Governments, and working to make Tucson an even better place to live.
