Chris is, and has always been, a stabilizing force in the studio.  Since beginning his tenure, Chris has been a driven, focused designer with an intensity that complements the ambitions exemplified by Michele.  As colleagues, the two exhibit a rare compatibility.  Michele trusts his insight; Chris intuitively understands the ideas she presents.  In the studio, he is a deft translator of ideas into architecture.


He brings commitment to his work, matched only by the pride he takes in precision. His details are clean, resolved.  Architecture by his hand becomes a finely crafted artifact. Diligent and talented, Chris has been recognized as an essential member of Foster Associates.


When away from the studio Chris spends time with his wife and two sons.
