David arrived at a career in Architecture through interests in the fine arts and naval architecture. David’s varied interests and ever evolving appreciation for the craft in building has driven him to study and understand a project’s surroundings and strive to draw from these surroundings for informed, thoughtful design.
For David, a successful building is both an expression of and an enhancement of its community. The open visual design of the Maimonides Lobby achieves this through its celebration of the diverse population that Maimonides Medical Center serves, while also providing an organized and efficient entrance to the hospital. The carefully considered details on the facade of 77 Reade Street is another example of a modern building paying homage to its landmarked district while also providing a glimpse to the future.
David’s process includes both the use of the newest technologies and hand drawings in order to complete a design study. David has successfully managed large and complex project teams at BKSK.
David has served as Adjunct Assistant Professor at City Tech’s program for Architectural Technology. He received his Bachelor of Science and Master of Architecture from the University of Maryland where he received the thesis citation. When not in the office, you’ll find David competitively sailboat racing in the Long Island Sound 52 weeks a year.
