About 

Hello. My name is Josh Westerman and I am a young designer eager to use my passion for smart design and planning through architecture. I have curated a diverse working experience that includes a variety of project types, preparing me to appropriately respond to the human experience at hand. My passion for architecture, urban design, and planning is sparked by an evolving curiosity in how people work, live and interact in urban settings. Architecture should enhance the human experience and I am dedicated to creating a built environment that promotes inclusion, champions sustainability, and strengthens community.
