Atalie Ruhnke is drawn to architecture that has a positive contribution on communities. For Atalie, good architecture is sensitive to context; it is sophisticatedly integrated into a certain environment, giving the work the ability to effectively serve the people that encounter it. She is fascinated by the ways individuals are affected by architecture, both psychologically and socially. This fascination motivates her to create the most well-integrated, meaningful work. Atalie has a strong appreciation for architectural knowledge, and practicing as an architect allows her to constantly learn about new considerations, factors, contexts, and ideas that emerge within different projects. Her favorite part about working at substance is being able to work in an environment that fosters this appreciation for learning.
