Why architecture? “I think a lot of it stems from the love of playing with Legos when I was younger. They give you the ability to follow the plans to build something but at the same time you had the creative freedom to come up with something completely original which could be equally as awesome.”
At eaa, Freddy utilizes this same creativity when solving design problems, always keeping the client’s needs top-of-mind. His goal is to design a space that inspires its occupants to be creative and generate new ideas. He is involved in the complete design process, an expert in concept and schematic design, design development, code and zoning knowledge, 3D modeling and visualization, and construction administration. Seeing designs and ideas move from paper and images to their built form is his favorite part of the work.
Outside of the studio, Freddy spends his time looking for new street artwork around the city, and designing soccer jerseys.
