Favorite Duda|Paine project?
The Quiet Room is a great example of an intimate space that is sensitive to the needs of an individual while merging the artfulness of smaller scale craftsmanship in furniture, lighting and sensory installation elements. It’s exemplary of the transformative nature of architecture.
What attracted you to the architectural field?
The subtlety of architecture. It’s omnipresent, yet often unnoticed; while at the same time instinctually people can sense the power of a truly evocative space. I’m exhilarated by the magical, enigmatic formula that transforms the mundane to the memorable.
What aspect of your job are you most motivated by?
Connecting to people and creating engaging environments, whether through spatial conditions such as scale or other tactile, sensory experiences. And the relationship between architecture and other artistic disciplines as well as how these correlations translate into the built environment. Thoughtful design is a synthesis, a fusion of intellectual iterative pursuits and collection of intangible, ephemeral phenomena that I find fulfilling.
