Member Spotlight

Lee Kvarnberg, AIA
As part of our mission to highlight the excellent work of our members and share the role that Architects have in shaping our built environment, we have asked our previous Design Award Winners to share their experiences in creating and bringing to completion their projects. These series have been formatted as a recurring unedited conversation that will bring the voice of the Architect to our readers.
