Our History


In 1969, Richard Lamoureux launched an architectural firm dedicated to the highest standards of creative design and professional service. In 1987, Michael Pagano was named partner and the firm became Lamoureux Pagano and Associates.

In the following years, the firm expanded both the size and scope of its portfolio—winning national as well as local acclaim for its design of educational, cultural, medical and corporate buildings, as well as its work in historic preservation, sustainable design, and owner project management.

By 2000, four additional principals were added in recognition of their extensive experience and increased responsibilities within the firm: Kathryn Crockett, Richard Lamoureux, Jr., Eric Moore, and Robert Para, Jr.

Mike Pagano became president in 2007 following the retirement of Richard Lamoureux after a distinguished career. Since then, LPA has celebrated the completion of a number of projects, including The Hanover Theatre for the Performing Arts, an historic icon which has become a cornerstone of the revitalization of downtown Worcester. The firm has also designed many educational buildings, including Worcester Technical High School which is often cited as a national model of a contemporary vocational high school.

Today, the LPA team—principals, project architects and professional support staff—continues to build the firm’s reputation for creative design, superior service, and exceptional client relationships.
