Technical Design Training Program

Irene recently led a group of Designer 1’s and 2’s on a tour of San Francisco’s De Young Museum, where the group discussed how technical detailing and code compliance merged with the museum’s design intent.

“I am so excited about the opportunity to shape a culture of technical innovation that supports the design excellence at Perkins&Will!”
