We Asked, Ciro Ruiz Answered:
What inspires you?
‟I’m inspired by nature, as well as by humanity when it’s at its best. I admire the ability of people to unite for a common cause, when we’re able to leave our comfort zones to make the world around us better.”
What drew you to architecture?
‟I love place-making. Through traveling with my family, some of my earliest memories are of city skylines. The seed was planted very early, as I picked up drawing and fell in love with the old-school way of creating architectural designs by hand.”
