LA Magazine Lists Alum among ‘Design’s New Guard’

Alum Alejandro Artigas (B.Arch '03) of Artless and fellow partner Thomas John Curtis are featured in the May 2010 issue of Los Angeles Times Magazine. The publication's design-dedicated issue lists Artigas and Curtis among "design's fresh faces."

Artigas, 32, trained as an architect at SCI-Arc and Columbia University and has completed several large-scale public-art projects in his family's native home, Mexico City. He founded Artless together with Curtis in 2003.
