For more than three decades, substance principal Todd Garner has been helping clients determine how spaces and experience can help shape their identities. From early programming exercises to completed corporate headquarters, Todd’s passion for guiding clients and project teams through the design and construction process enables people to envision unexpected possibilities at multiple scales and in a range of contexts. The resulting solutions exceed initial expectations; and his deep knowledge of construction ensures quality implementation of these solutions. Whether the result is an award-winning building or just a good story, for Todd the strongest projects build upon interactions between the design team, client groups, and contractors to create architecture that connects occupants to something bigger than the building itself, grounded in clear ideas and communicated through honest material expression. Currently Todd leads teams engaged in ongoing relationships with a number of corporate and public infrastructure clients, a list that includes Fortune 500 companies and Des Moines Area Regional Transit.
