Q and A
Favorite HPS Project
Gordon & Betty Moore Foundation
I learned most
As an architecture student at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo. While I was there, I was fortunate enough to have had exposure to some really great professors, as well as a very hands-on, "learn by doing" approach to designing. My favorite memories from school are those in which I spent in studio thinking through different ideas by making physical models.
Good Design Is
When all aspects of the design informs each other — In the case of architecture, that would include the interior, the graphics, the landscape, etc.
If Architecture is Music it’s
Classical music. The kind of music that can be enjoyed years beyond its creation.
