Jonathan Warner excels at hybridizing digital and physical design strategies that evoke an imaginative sense of material, form, and interaction. Additionally, the breadth of his design work illustrates an in-depth understanding of aesthetic experimentation and spatial awareness. 

With his upcoming Masters of Architecture II degree from The Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc), he is looking to find a position that highlights his abilities in architectural thinking, actively challenges common design tropes, and sends him on the path to licensure. He has been recognized in multiple awards, exhibitions, and publications — demonstrating his willingness to receive work and to execute it with his highest ability. Some of these recognitions include 1st Place in the AIA Small Project Design Competition, Excellence in Critical Exploration, and 2nd Place in the Julius Shulman Emerging Talent Competition.
