Although it may sound clichéd, I live, eat and breathe architecture. I’m currently a principal in the architectural firm of PageSoutherlandPage and a professor, as well as the former dean, in the School of Architecture at the University of Texas at Austin. I deeply love the process of design and have had opportunities to lead significant projects including Austin-Bergstrom International Airport, the Austin Convention Center and the architecture of Discovery Green Park in Houston. My teaching and writing are aimed at educating people on the importance of great architecture in contemporary American culture.
