Manuel Delgado Arteaga, Architect and Urban Designer at Wentworth Institute of Technology, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Executives for dedication, achievements and leadership in architecture.
Originally from Venezuela, Mr. Delgado started teaching in 1980 because he wanted to be exposed to the teaching of architecture in Mexican cities. He wanted to understand the aspirations of people and loved to learn with his students. In addition to his primary trade, he continues teaching through an exchange program with the University of Girona in Spain, which he participates in once or twice a year and brings a student from the Department of Architecture along. Prior to the start of his career, Mr. Delgado pursued a formal education at the Universidad Central de Venezuela in Caracas, earning a Bachelor of Architecture. He then attended the Churubusco Institute in Mexico, where he received a Master of Arts in building restoration. He went on to attain a Master of Arts in urban studies and planning, with a concentration in urban design, from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2001.
The principal of the La Carlota Redevelopment Competition Team in Caracas, as well as a frequent juror at international competitions, Mr. Delgado is a board member for the Fenway–Kenmore neighborhood of Boston. Additionally, he was the co-organizer of the Designing for Life International Symposium in 2009 and 2013, and recently published an article, “Ecological Urbanism in Latin America,” through Harvard University in December 2019. He also won first prize in the category of Architect at the Parque Verde Metropolitano Design Competition in 2012 for one of the largest urban parcels in Latin America. Mr. Delgado attributes his success by the number of buildings he has contributed to and also enjoying his career. He never truly “works” a day in his life.
Moving forward, Mr. Delgado would like to be remembered as someone who occupied his life with the development of public space to the city, being houses in both large and small places. His advice to those looking to pursue his field is to be patient because it is a profession that takes a long time to be completed.
