Andrew founded Linebox in 2007 based on the premise that architecture is just a series of lines and boxes that come together to create a sculptural object. However, he believes that the soul of a space comes from the connection of the characters that inhabit it and the natural environment that surrounds it.
Andrew is ardent in his opinions. His office rants are fabled. He'll rant about "detailing" or why stadiums should be downtown. He also welcomes a challenge. Just be ready to argue your points!
Andrew is from Windsor, ON, studied at Carleton University and is into hockey, golf, tennis and woodworking.
