What is your approach to architecture?
We all have our particular roles to fulfill in the profession of architecture, whether it is design, technical documents or construction administration. My approach has been to find the place where I feel most effective and then pursue that with a passion for and a commitment to excellence. With my limited design training, it has always been my desire to take the designer’s design and to make it work and complete the vision for the designer.
What is the most rewarding part of your job?
The most rewarding part of my job is being at the place in the project where the client’s dream and the designer’s vision become a reality that can be seen and experienced.
