Paolo Orlando focuses on a user-centered approach to architecture, believing that good architecture is something that can be experienced directly. For Paolo, it is important for architecture to respond to the context that it is in, understanding what is being changed through the creation of a new space. The beginning of each project, where ideas are tested and brainstorming takes place, is Paolo’s favorite part of the design process. Working for substance has given him the opportunity to work on many different project types on many different scales, a challenge that he greatly enjoys. Paolo’s design goal is to create an image that tells the story of the entire project, using that image as an outline to overcome every challenge that arises through the whole design process. Paolo is passionate about designing architecture close to home, being able to contribute directly to his community.
