His designs have received numerous awards from the American Institute of Architects, and has been published in several design magazines and publications in Indonesia, Singapore, China, Germany and the US.
After graduating from Harvard, Albertus practiced architecture in Asia, where he simultaneously taught architecture and urban design at the University of Pelita Harapan in Jakarta. In 2007, he was invited back to the University of Florida to teach, where he became involved in coordinating a study-abroad program, the University of Florida Hong Kong / China Program, and co-directing/directing the University of Florida East Asia Program.
He has collaborated with several well-regarded East-Asian universities – Huazhong University of Science and Technology, Xi’an University of Architecture and Technology, Chongqing University, Chinese University of Hong Kong, Institute Technology Bandung, and University of Gajah Mada.

His academic and practical endeavors have complimented each other, allowing teaching to inspire practice and vice versa, and embracing the critical dialogue and interface between the East, his heritage, and the West, his upbringing.
