Luis is also one of three founding faculty members of The Catholic University of America Design Collaborative (CUAdc), a non-profit architectural design firm providing services to community groups in the District of Columbia. He has had his work both published and presented at various national and international venues including Syracuse University, Mississippi State University, University of Detroit-Mercy, University of Kentucky, and the University of Toronto. His work in his digital design-build studios has been published and exhibited internationally. In 2005, he received the New Faculty Teaching Award from the Association of Collegiate School of Architecture and in 2006, the Education Honor Award from the American Institute of Architects.
