“I have often been asked how I made the switch to architecture from biology. Architecture and the biological sciences are actually quite similar. Biological systems require organisms to go through a rigorous selection process, and those that adapt and evolve, survive and flourish in their environments. Great buildings require a similar rigor in their design: beauty and composition will only be affective if it is utilized to reinforce building function and response to environment. My goal is to make beautiful buildings that are biologically sensitive.”
