Alberto Latorre is a Miami based registered architect, designer and multi-disciplinary artist. His work explores the symbiotic relationships between humanity, nature and art.  He creates works using architecture, design and art as a vehicle to blend the lines between art and our relationship to nature.     

Mr. Latorre graduated in 1992 from the University of Miami with a bachelor’s degree in Architecture.

From 1992 to 2006, he was project architect at C3TS in Coral Gables, Florida.  During 14 years, he managed and designed institutional projects, as well as malls, schools, universities, residences, recreational parks and community centers. Some of these projects include the one million square feet Shops at Sunset Place, as well as the highly recognize and playful cabana-style Miami Beach public facilities found along the Collins Avenue corridor.  

In 2000, he collaborated with internationally recognized artist Carlos Betancourt in the ephemeral monumental art installation ‘The Sound Symbols Project’ installed on the Miami Beach sand. This project received the Millennium Cultural Recognition Award by the Florida Department of State.  He also managed and helped produce ‘Realm of Secrets’, a Miami-Dade Art in Public Places art commission consisting of eleven huge wall sculptures at Miami International Airport.  Both of these projects were in collaboration.

In 2006, he founded Alberto Latorre Architecture as a way of focusing his interest of merging art and architecture while collaborating with artists and designers.  Since then, he has continued to design residences, furniture and public and private art commissions, with unique projects at Metro Zoo, Doral Animal Shelter, Seaspice, Faena Art and restaurant Larios on the Beach.  Other notable collaborations includes site specific artworks for Celebrity and Royal Caribbean cruises to include “Magic Gardens” an enormous cast bronze sculpture, as well as a 10-story high sculptural work titled  ‘Flock of Seagulls’.

In 2019, Mr. Latorre co-curated with Ximena Caminos and art produced a one of a kind sculptural pavilion and art experience titled ‘Roots’ designed by Marko Brajovic.  The pavilion designed to simulate a large mangrove root system was exhibited to great acclaim at Design Miami with the purpose to educate by raising the collective consciousness by evolving into a new, ecological and regenerative era.  

Because of his invaluable expertise, he was named the Miami Beach Reef Line’s Production Liaison Director, where he manages and directs artists, engineers, and production team to construct an ecological underwater sculptural park creating a habitat for endangered reef organisms, promoting biodiversity and enhancing coastal resilience while generating the opportunity for snorkeling and scuba diving experiences.

Currently, he is working in architectural projects in Little River Florida, the Puerto Rico rainforest as well several private residences on the tropical jungles of Careyes, Mexico. 

Mr. Latorre is also co-founder of the Betancourt-Latorre Foundation, a non for profit, 501(c)3 organization benefiting artists from Miami and the Caribbean basin. The Foundation recently awarded more than 30 grants to artists affected economically by the Covid-19 pandemic.
