Why do design? I have a fundamental need to make things especially things that people can use in their daily lives. Function is key.
How does working in the Detroit area influence your work? We are inspired by the history of Albert Kahn’s board form concrete factories, which is very specific to Detroit. The history of how concrete was used in these structures as a tool of architectural, social and economic innovation really drives what we to today.
