An architect from Mexico achieves sky-high success in New York

Americas Now

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, there were over 55 million Latinos living in the United States as of 2016. Back in 1980, that number was under 15 million.

Our Urban Voice was born in Latin America and has lived in the U.S. since even before 1980. He re-located to New York City to seek his fortune in a profession the town is famous for – architecture.

Today, you could say he’s found a certain degree of fame himself. He’s the head of a leading architectural firm in the city. And he’s helping enhance the cityscape with his sleek and often slender structures.

For our Urban Voice on “Americas Now” meet the founder of Ismael Leyva Architects… Ismael Leyva.
