It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our cherished friend and esteemed colleague, Robert Curto. Rob was not just a Studio Director at WJ Architects (formerly Stephen Boruff, AIA Architects and Planners), but a pillar of strength, a beacon of professionalism, and a dear friend to many.

Rob’s dedication to his craft was unmatched, spanning nearly three decades of unwavering commitment and creativity.  His impact reverberates through the countless projects he spearheaded and the countless lives he touched. His legacy as a devoted family man, a loyal friend, and a consummate professional will forever endure.
