Joshua Arcurio is an Associate and the Design Technology Administrator at David M. Schwarz Architects. Joshua received a Bachelor of Architecture and Economics Minor from the University of Miami in Coral Gables, Florida, and is a longtime member of the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art (ICAA) and the Congress for the New Urbanism (CNU).
Josh’s recent project experience at DMSAS has focused on transit-oriented, mixed-use planning and architecture projects like Chevy Chase Lake and Riverside Station. A former college radio DJ, he is well-suited for his current role as Project Architect on an 8,000-seat outdoor amphitheater in Huntsville, Alabama.
Prior to joining the firm in 2014, he spent nearly a decade working under Teófilo Victoria, Seaside’s first Town Architect, Maria de la Guardia, and Ernesto Buch on projects featured in several publications, including the books Traditional Architecture: Timeless Building for the Twenty-First Century, Classical Interiors: Historical and Contemporary, and New Palladians, and the ICAA’s Classicist journal. Joshua sees architecture as a process, a civic contribution, and a collaborative art that can pursue beauty and the sublime, and represent the values and aspirations of a community. In addition, Josh has a keen interest and expertise in digital technology implementation, maintenance, and training, furthering the office’s ability to create architecture that, in the words of Alberti, “gives comfort and the greatest pleasure to [hu]mankind, to individual and community alike”.
Outside the office, he enjoys meditation, crossword puzzles, and researching the intersection of sociological and economic conditions with the built environment in his hometown of Johnstown, Pennsylvania.
