Carrier Johnson LA Hires Castillo

Architect Rick Castillo has joined Carrier Johnson + CULTURE as director of architecture, Los Angeles. Castillo is already leading several projects for the firm, including proposals for mixed-use high-rise developments, and contributing to commissions already under construction, including Westminster Civic Center, a high-rise, and several low- and mid-rise buildings.

Castillo was previously vice president of MVE + Partners. In his 20-plus years with that firm, he focused primarily on project delivery strategy and scheduling, project management for design and management of senior technical staff. That experience translates into a deep understanding of the Downtown Los Angeles commercial construction and real estate markets, Carrier Johnson + CULTURE noted in its release on the hire.

“Rick is a respected member of the architecture community whose 30-plus years in this industry have given him a unique understanding of business-driven design concepts,” says Vincent Mudd, managing partner at Carrier Johnson + CULTURE. “He is the right choice to lead architecture in our LA studio as we strive firm-wide to achieve excellence in design and technical delivery, and as we continue to reinforce our reputation as leaders in the Los Angeles market.”

Castillo adds: “Competing in the Southern California markets requires quite a bit of experience and knowledge. I’m proud that Carrier Johnson + CULTURE has placed their trust in me as a leader within the firm. And I’m very pleased to be in a role that will afford me the opportunity to spend more time directly contributing architecture and design output.”
