We Asked, Liam Answered:

 

What inspires you?

“I get most of my inspiration through firsthand experience. I enjoy walking through city neighborhoods, whether familiar or new, to see and learn how people engage with their surroundings. I explore with an eye for what differentiates a place, and how I can adapt the new experience into my design work.”

 

How would you describe your leadership style?

“I like to lead with a steady hand. To be a good leader, you also have to be an investigator, testing various solutions to a design problem that will result in the strongest resolution. In order to lead a project, you must be able to distill the essence of the design, as well as the challenges it faces. Once the goal is clear, then my team and I can get down to the business of achieving it.”
