Albert Quesada, a local native of Los Angeles is familiar with American Society of Engineers and Architects, involved in the local chapter of ASEA while a student in the architecture program at Mt. San Antonio Community College. Upon graduating with an A.S. degree from Mt SAC, he pursued his Bachelors of Architecture at the University of Southern California and later furthering his education by obtaining a Master of Arch and Urban Design from Harvard University.
Mr. Quesada is proud to be associated with ASEA and its mission to increase the educational experience for architecture and engineering-interested students at many of the community college and high school campuses in Southern California involved with ASEA. His experience as an ASEA student enriched his understanding of the architecture profession: the opportunity to interact with fellow students pursuing similar coursework as well as the resources and mentoring provided to a participating student from professionals/teaching staff associated with ASEA “The opportunities afforded to community college students are quite limited, expectations low and resources diminished. But the experience given to these students through ASEA, via mentoring and scholarship has provided an opportunity for hope and promise to many aspiring architecture and engineering students in their pursuit of these professions, an opportunity not afforded otherwise on a two year higher education campus.
Mr. Quesada is a dedicated professional with an extensive background and over 19 years of architectural experience with many leading architectural practices in Southern California including LHA Architects, HMC, and gkkworks. He is currently a Project Manager with gkkworks, managing a variety of projects including K-12 School District Modernizations. Central Kitchen Food Facilities, Technology and Life Safety Upgrades, Higher Education with the Los Angeles Community College District, and the Kern County Community College District.
