AIA, LEED AP
“Creative people work best when they believe in the work they are doing, and I do my best to align people, projects, and talents so that designers feel fulfilled by their work and valued by their team."
Matthew is a design leader who practices under the premise that design studios should be active and fun, with more laughing and less chin scratching. He mentors design teams to consider the permanent elements of design such as the users, site, and environment over the latest trends and design rhetoric.
Matthew has contributed design expertise to a range of building types in the United States and internationally, including civic, education, and retail. His work includes the new CTE Building at Antelope Valley College, the Horticultural and Operations Headquarters at the University of Minnesota Landscape Arboretum, Ridgedale Center, and an innovative student housing concept for CampusCiti in Kenya.
“Architecture isn't about projects, it's about people. I don't remember projects as much as I remember the people who were part of the design process."
