My greatest satisfaction in architecture is when we start to see the three-dimensional spaces that were designed in our heads become physical reality—we begin to see light, feel textures, and move through sequences that took hundreds of hours to translate. These great moments and environments are not accidental.
Architecture is what happens when everyone works together to discover the best possible solution at each step of the design and construction process. Inevitably, a well-designed building is always the result of a great conversation. I feel so lucky that my job is to make sure that our team dialogue reaches the highest emotional, intellectual, and pragmatic levels possible. If we craft buildings that continually foster that sense of discovery with their users, we are positively affecting lives that we never imagined and creating timeless design.
