Matthew ShanksProject Manager, RA, LEED AP
“One misconception is that if it looks simple it must be easy to design. Great architecture takes complex conditions and makes them appear simple. In this way, architects actually conceal some of their best work.”
Matthew sees architecture not as the creation of a static, protective enclosure, but as a dynamic art form that shapes the interaction between people and the encompassing environment. Always keeping the program requirements of a building’s users in mind, he aims to anchor a design in its context while enhancing one’s experience of place.
