“We are global design leaders. Our clients partner with us to break new ground in innovative design solutions.” 

Paul spearheads the firm’s expansive Cultural+Performing Arts Studio. Under his tutelage the firm has amassed a treasure trove of award winning designs and has cultivated a number top designers and technicians dedicated to this unique market. 

Paul was one of the youngest architects to have been elected to the College of Fellows of the American Institute of Architects and is a recipient of a state level AIA Gold Medal, the highest honor that AIA bestows on an individual. 

He believes that the key to integrated design is the ability to trust the team’s shared experiences and its vital to respect the contribution each discipline brings to the table. This collaboration leads to higher quality communication, coordination, control and end product. 

“My best ideas come to me at the very outset of design, before any limitations or constraints are placed on the project.”
