Dru Chapman Lewis

Architect / AIA / NCARB

Dru enjoys being part of an ever-evolving profession where, at its core, one simultaneously works through a set of inquiries at micro and macro scales. Architecture is a jumble of aesthetics, science, and experiences, but ultimately it is a privilege to create not just a place, but a sense of place.
