My Design Statement:

Good architecture comes from a visual design that also incorporates sound technical concepts. The computer is a wonderful tool that enhances our ability to design. It reduces the amount of time spent on technical details freeing up time for designing better architecture. Often considered to do work for you, it is no different than a pencil and paper when used as a medium to express ideas. The analysis that can be performed by computers makes buildings safer and cheaper while minimizing their carbon footprint.
