Dino believes the architectural process should unify and clarify design ideas into aesthetically pleasing and logical built solutions. He helps Duda|Paine’s studio establish new and effective techniques for enhancing and executing project requirements, while fostering experimentation and interaction among team members.
Having lived and studied architecture in Austin, Dino believes the Frost Bank Tower’s iconic, imaginative design significantly influenced Austin’s contemporary construction boom.
Dino considers architecture an art, where concepts are explored and boundaries are pushed. The profession requires confidence and pride, but like any other art, it also requires an understanding of community, priority and the issues facing the world at large. A challenge Dino faces willingly and thoughtfully is producing documentation that conveys the technical aspects of a design while capturing and evoking the emotion, drama and energy of an idea.
