From college residence halls and high-tech science buildings to hospitals, athletic facilities, and churches, Craig’s talent as a design leader has touched a variety of projects during his 24-year career at BWBR. His work has given him insights into design’s impact on well-being and communities. Craig invites stakeholders to participate in the process, creating common visions, consensus, and ownership of the design solution.

“Good design inspires visual wonder and delivers functional solutions — the balance of art and science. Good design also enriches our culture, our attitudes, and our outlook by creating places that, through design excellence, make us more effective, make us think, or make us grow. In other words, good design should look good, work well, and then, ultimately, make us better people.”
