GREG ANDRADE is a licensed Architect-LEED AP with a primary focus on branded experiences in Retail, Dining and Entertainment design. Greg’s team efforts provide vital high conceptual creative content and organizational skills contributing to successful project developments.
In 1991 Greg began working with the Imagineering division at the Walt Disney Company as a licensed architect. In 2001, he launched Andrade Studio, his own themed design practice specializing in lifestyle, hospitality and narrative based projects globally in the USA, UAE, Europe, Japan, China and Korea.
Greg’s commitment to educating young designers began with mentoring the employees in his Pasadena design studio. Upon orchestrating larger projects the value of critical thinking for entry-level talent became apparent during the course of his practice. It then became clear to him that his level of experience would be of great value in the teaching and learning environment.
Upon earning his MsArch credentials in 2015 Greg began to dedicate more of his time and talent to teaching young design students and is currently teaching at Art Center College of Design.
Greg is an actively practicing design talent fighting for beauty in the world at large.
