See my website at www.qstanton.com for a more complete background and portfolio.
I'm a licensed architect, living and working in New York since 2009. I'm an associate at Handel Architects.
Before Handel, I worked at a wide range of firms, from boutique offices (Parallel Design), to some of the largest (SOM and Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill). I'm also experienced in a wide range of projects, from furniture design to skyscrapers.
I have a Master of Architecture from Berkeley, and an undergrad in business. I worked in real estate before grad school, my intention is to use knowledge from my previous career to enhance my design work: seeing the constraints of the market as a spur - not an impediment - to better architecture. I also believe in using sustainable design strategies and digital tools to enhance the design process.
