About 

Havard Cooper is a disciplined architectural designer, LEED Green Associate and graduate of the Savannah College of Art and Design with a Professional Master of Architecture and Bachelor of Fine Arts degree; as well as an active member of the Architectural League of New York. He intends on becoming a LEED AP in the next few months; one more step on the road to becoming a licensed architect.

 

Havard Cooper has not defined his style preferences and appreciates the incorporating usually segregated styling worlds. He appreciates Tadao Ando's use of forgotten knowledge, the immersion into the unconscious by Dalí, the stark simplicity of Richard Meier, the flamboyant sensual lines of Baroque; and especially the marriage of the seemingly distant methods of exploration. The exposure of the of perverse systems in Renzo Piano's "Centre Pompidou", and appreciates the sharp laying of planes by Frank Lloyd Wright. The style or manner in which any design should be executed should be through programmatic rules, but executed with grace where the complexity of systems should be softened by the simplicity of the design.
