Michael S. Antenora
AIAPrincipal - Commercial Practice Leader
On the most basic level, our role is to produce architecture that is responsive to the needs and objectives of our clients. However, the very best architecture aspires to transcend pure necessity to create meaningful, evocative and timeless spaces for people and for the communities in which they live, work and play. Striving to do both is what motivates me as an architect.
