In June 2005, he received a University of Notre Dame Distinguished Asian Pacific Alumni Award.

Until his return to the Philippines in the late 1990s, he maintained a license to practise architecture in New York State.

He has served as Vice President of the Heritage Conservation Society (HCS), and for two three-year terms, he represented HCS on the Executive Council of the National Committee on Monuments and Sites (NCMS) of the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA). He has also served on the board of the Philippine Green Building Initiative (PGBI). #ImpactArchitecture #BuildingImpact #architecturefestival #designfestival #architecture #design #archilife #ilovearchitecture #archilovers #next_top_architects #architects_need #architectureanddesign #designbetter #architalks
