Juan Betancur

Director of Design, Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill

Juan Betancur, AIA, LEED AP is an expert in designing supertall, high-performance buildings. As Director at Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture (AS+GG), he has developed a comprehensive design approach that incorporates innovative solutions to many of the issues that plague this building typology. Through smart design, new technologies, and basic principles of orientation, natural ventilation, and building massing to optimize performance, Juan has learned that supertall towers can reduce their consumption of energy to improve dense urban areas where natural resources and space are at a premium. At AS+GG, and previously as an Associate at Skidmore, Owings & Merrill in Chicago, Juan has worked numerous large-scale and supertall projects including Wuhan Greenland Center, a 606-meter-tall mixed-use tower to be completed in 2024; the award-winning FKI Tower in Seoul, Korea completed in 2014; and Pearl River Tower, a 303-meter tower designed to harvest wind and solar energy in Guangzhou, China.
