Caudill FAIA, founder of the firm, has been honored by the American Institute of Architects for his lifetime of architectural achievement. Currently led by James A.

OUR EXPERTISE

ARCHITECTURE

“In a strange way, architecture is really an unfinished thing, because even though the building is finished, it takes on a new life. It becomes part of a new dynamic: how people will occupy it, use it, think about it.” – Daniel Libeskind

PLANNING

“A great building must begin with the immeasurable, must go through measurable means when it is being designed, and in the end must be unmeasured.” – Louis Kahn

INTERIORS

“As an architect you design for the present, with an awareness of the past, for a future which is essentially unknown.” – Norman Foster
