Born and raised in the enchanted archipelago of Puerto Rico, Isaac Alejandro Mangual-Martínez holds a Master of Architecture from Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University (FAMU) and a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Design from the University of Puerto Rico. He has previously taught beginning design studios at FAMU and is particularly interested in the storytelling and narrative aspects of disciplines, such as film, literature and art, with architecture.

During the past two years, he has also participated in conferences from the Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture (ACSA), AMPS: Architecture, Media, Politics, Society, Architectural Research Centers Consortium (ARCC), and National Conference on the Beginning Design Student (NCBDS), sharing pedagogical experiences and conversing about the power of identity and representation in our field.
