Helpern Architects

Amauri Guillen, AIA

Amauri Guillen came to the firm at the start of 2006 right after a post-graduate internship in CUNY’s Office of Space Planning & Capital Budget on campus space needs and utilization. He has been involved in many of the firm’s physical and capital master plans, feasibility studies, zoning analyses, and space planning. He became a Senior Associate in 2016.

Amauri is also a project manager involved in the long-range restoration and expansion of the historic Marble Collegiate Church [including its new organ and its new South Portal] and the mixed-use development potential for the adjacent property held by Marble. Other projects include master plans for Collegiate School; the renovation of the UN’s Dag Hammarskjold Library; logistics for replacing 2,000 windows of a NYC-landmarked office building, and design concepts for an industrial complex in northern Manhattan.

Amauri has been engaged in computer-aided design since high school. In fact, after he completed his Bachelor of Architecture studies at what became known as CUNY/NYC College of Technology, he taught computer-generated presentation drawing as well as architectural history. Amauri heads Helpern Architects’ Technology Committee, whose goal is to achieve quality design documents and efficient work through the proper use of CAD technology.
