“Architecture is about understanding the social construct of the building you are designing and then creating an environment that supports that construct,” said Paul Winslow, FAIA, Partner Architect. “Function and aesthetic are essential to complete the design, but understanding how users will use a building for social interaction is as critical for its success. Growing our team will allow us to build upon these principles.”
