ANDRE VITE, AIA
Principal, Director of Laboratories and Higher Education
“Design can be a self-indulgent pursuit. It’s only when it chooses to inspire and address issues related to social justice that it becomes architecture.”
With 30 years of experience working as an architect and urban designer, Andre has designed and managed award winning projects throughout the United States totally over three and a half million square feet in scope and worth over a billion dollars in construction cost. His career has been focused primarily on creating sustainable, technically sophisticated academic and research facilities that integrate within, and enhance the fabric of, existing cities and campuses.
Andre holds a Master of Architecture in Urban Design from the Harvard Graduate School of Design as well as a Master of Architecture from the University of Colorado. Prior to becoming Campus Architect and Associate Vice Chancellor for Institutional Planning for the University of Colorado in 2012, Andre held senior level positions with Fentress Architects in Denver as well as Ellenzweig Associates in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
He is a frequent presenter at national conferences and has served on numerous design review boards.
