About the speaker

Throughout our careers as architects and designers, we strive to impart meaning to the spaces and buildings we envision. The story often evolves from a series of thoughtful considerations that expand into evocative messages. With time, these buildings and spaces convey the depth of their experience, they speak through those that inhabit them.
