Larry is DLR Group's Asia Region Leader. He directs the firm's operations in China working to build relationships with international clients doing business in Asia. His responsibilities include strategic planning, business development, design oversight, and project management for international projects. Larry's clients rely on his understanding of the business culture in China and his ability to lead projects from concept through design.

Since beginning his career in architecture in 1977, Larry has worked with diverse clients around the world in the planning and design of civic, healthcare, higher education, hospitality, K-12 education, transit facilities (ports and terminals for air, marine, and rail), residential, retail/mixed-use, and workplace facilities. His experience spans leadership and director positions with diverse design firms and businesses.

"DLR Group has such a deep and rich history. The firm has a beautiful portfolio of respected icons like Seattle's Space Needle, iconic high rise buildings in cities around the world, and many decades of experience with Boeing. That history and culture informs the amazing design that my peers here are doing today."

Larry's recent work includes collaborating with a developer to master plan a new sustainable eco-tourism development around ecologically valuable wetlands area in China; designing a mixed-use entertainment expansion to a major shopping mall in Beijing; and the design for an adaptive-reuse of the former Yang Shu Pu coal power plant in Shanghai into a mixed-use development offering education, exhibit, office, and retail functions exhibiting best practices in sustainability and high performance design.
