As the design leader for many of the firm’s large infrastructure projects, Paul Bauer takes an iterative and research-based approach to architecture. He views the highly specific set of requirements that guide infrastructure design as an opportunity for discovery rather than a limit for potential, and he strives to develop clear conceptual frameworks through a collaborative process. Having studied architecture from an engineering standpoint, Paul is particularly attuned to the systems that make infrastructure projects function—a perspective that allows him to establish a firm understanding of a project’s goals among all participants, and to maintain a positive rapport with clients. His belief that each team member contributes invaluable design insight underpins his mentoring and consensus-building skills.
Paul’s commitment to enhancing the built environment is further expressed through his professional affiliations, including the AIA New York Chapter’s Transportation and Infrastructure Committee. Paul has studied at the Ecole National Superior Des Beaux Arts in Paris, and holds both a Bachelor of Science and a Master of Architecture from Georgia Institute of Technology.
