Since his first foray into architecture in his high school days, Todd has steadily built his career by following a thoughtful experimentation process that celebrates complexity and taking measured risks. Case in point: a standout portfolio project–a master planning effort along a waterway in Spain–draws from archival maps to understand the historical shape of its site’s shoreline, using it both as a guide and orienting parameter in the planning process. This attentiveness to the elements of place–history, context, and future–reflect in his growing portfolio. Unmarried to a specific typology, Todd is instead committed to projects that broaden his horizons–from core and shell developments for workplace and retail, to healthcare facilities, medical offices, and cultural centers.
Todd earned his Master of Architecture from the University of Virginia and his Bachelor’s degree from the South China University of Technology. His thesis revolved around experimenting with wood, aiming to increase the ease of maintenance and longevity of wood panels. In his spare time, he practices Kendo.
