Design Inspiration |
Ali’s favorite architects are Santiago Calatrava, Herzog & de Meuron, Louis Kahn, and locally, Fred Willson
Architectural Style |
Ali’s focus in architecture is function. She likes to work closely with a client to find out how they do things and find fun new ways to make a building and the spaces work well. This means flexibility for both how things work today and how they might work in the future.
Current Read |
Ali is always reading a parenting book, a fantasy novel, or both. She throws in books about history, science, philosophy, and design here and there. Her favorite authors are Steven Johnson, J.R.R. Tolkien, T.H. White, J.K. Rowling (yes, there are a lot of initials in fantasy writer’s names), Erik Larson, and Jonathan Safran Foer.
