We’d like to take the opportunity to introduce you to one of our Honorable mention winner for our “Toronto Affordable Housing Challenge” competition – Domenico Francesco Lio from United States!
Domenico Francesco Lio from United States
I am an architect with 25 years of experience working on large complex mixed-use and healthcare projects. I have worked at NBBJ for a total of 18 years, 17 years in the New York office. I am a graduate of the University of Michigan and Ryerson University.
At NBBJ, we focus on large complex projects with an emphasis on integrated design: beauty, performance, and meaningful experiences. It has been an honor to work on award-winning international projects and competitions that build a better world for future generations.
Architecture is our responsibility to make the world a better place. It means we must engage and actively improve conditions we may be able to influence, whether they be small acts of kindness, teachable moments, or transformational ideas.
I love all aspects of architecture competitions and the design process; research, discovery, the a-ha moments, iterations, editing, and presentation. Hopefully, the result is innovative, I have learned something from the experience, I can share what I learned, and continue to evolve in this ever-changing world.
Architecture competitions are the perfect vehicle to explore, learn, and share your ideas with the world. It’s a chance for you to raise your hand and let the world know you have a great idea to share; something to say - something that can hopefully make a difference in people’s lives.
Design a structure that would function as a source of education on past events or a method of raising awareness of ongoing injustices
