What inspires your designs?Different materials, the context and the site’s general surroundings. I also find inspiration in what the use of the building will be and how to make it function well for the end user.Which iconic architect would you love a chance to work with?Santiago CalatravaWhere in the world do you want to go next?My wife and I have Africa on the list. We are both very outdoorsy people and feel like we would love all of the great things to see and do in Africa that you cannot do anywhere else in the world. We also just like finding out about other cultures and immersing ourselves in them when we are there. When in Rome…Who’s one of your favorite artists?I enjoy art but do not have a favorite per se, so I am going with a music artist — I love Arcade Fire. My wife and I saw them in concert last year, and it was one of the best live performances we have seen. They have, like, seven people on stage, and it was quite an event. Even my wife said rocker chicks in leather playing violins is hot!
