Restaurants are leaving more room inside and incorporating outdoor dining. Spaced out restaurant seating feels more spacious and you don’t feel overcrowded.
Recently, we sat down with eaa Architectural Associate Tim Nguyen for a little industry chat, along with a question we posed to all our staff this month – what does PRIDE in the design community mean to you?
Incorporating personal style into a client’s vision takes a unique creativity and thoughtfulness. For me I derive a lot of my personal style from the fashion and art world, more specifically I tend to gravitate towards what has developed within the “street culture” aspects of these disciplines.
As spring moves into summer I find myself drawn more and more outside during all times of the day; a morning walk, lunch outside, an evening bike ride. While on these neighborhood ventures I have enjoyed finding historical biophilic design elements all around me.
Springtime, for me, is a welcome return to weekend bike rides with friends. There’s so much rejuvenation in spending a full day exploring different areas of the city otherwise rarely visited. After nearly two decades in Chicago, the city still delivers on new moments of discovery.
