Patrick Schoonover


Patrick’s interest in exploring and defining the relationship between ideas, fabrication and space relies on investigation, creativity and pragmatism. A passionate ‘maker,’ he supports the studio design process by bringing ideas to life for staff and clients through models and diagrams.


What attracted you to the architectural field?

I’ve always liked to make things, and architecture allows for investigation into the ideas behind those objects.


Favorite Duda|Paine project?

The Dillon. My wife and I live in Raleigh, and one of our favorite views of the city is from the Boylan St Bridge. I saw The Dillon from that vantage point and had to know who designed it—it’s one of the reasons I wanted to work here.


What aspect of your job most interests you?

The representation of ideas. Models and diagrams help designers move ideas from our heads into a language that speaks to our clients.
