One on One with Chris:


What do you do in your free time?

I love to go hiking and fishing, and just being outdoors in general. I also love listening to music and playing one of my many guitars.

What architect do you admire?

  • Tom Kundig, David Lake + Ted Flato  – For their abilities to seamlessly integrate a building into the surrounding landscape and creating a sense of place

  • Tadao Ando – For his sculptural use of concrete

  • Bjarke Ingels and Rem Koolhaas – For their ability to push the envelope of the profession

  • Christy Ten Eyck – Because Landscape Architects are Architects too.
