Principal Shanghai

Yu Tsai

“Shanghai Long Beach Observation Tower was my first project at DLR Group. It’s going to be a great public building for the citizens of Shanghai with a 120-meter office tower, a 360-key 5 Star hotel, a 180-meter observation tower, a 1,200-seat concert hall, and 9,000 square meters of retail with an aquarium. We say we ‘elevate human experience through design,’ and we worked to do that from the very first sketch.”

Associate San Francisco

Osma Thompson

"I've become a project manager a lot sooner than my peers, and I attribute that to the team in San Francisco lifting me up. I also run the staff meetings now. I never imagined that I would get to work on an innovative education project, a master planning project, perform construction administration on a transportation project, and be involved in important new business pursuits in the same year."

Senior Associate | Design Leader Dubai

Scott Pryde

"DLR Group culture is interactive with a well-defined set of values. The firm invests in its people, and I was excited to have the opportunity to travel from Dubai to Seattle and attend the annual DLR Group University. This truly gave me better insight into the firm’s culture by meeting my design peers. This interactivity fosters a collaborative design culture with truly integrated, innovative design."
