Paul’s motivation to become an architect was inspired by a visit to Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater when he was in high school. He had never imagined that a structure could be so connected to its site and harmonious with nature—all the while expressing modern design and aesthetics. Since entering the profession, Paul has crafted his work and refined this Wright-inspired protocol on every scale, from a single structure to a large, mixed-use development.
He cites one of his most recent projects to describe the culmination of his experience with urban design and complex large-scale mixed-use buildings. The Banco Popular campus in Puerto Rico weaves new buildings among existing structures in an urban fabric, creating a world-class urban plaza at its core to achieve a vibrant new public realm, aspiring to become the next “Great Place” in San Juan.
