“The design of aviation facilities is rooted in the aspirations and the physical environment of their specific locale or worldwide. Combining these factors with the requisite technological basis of design is a fascinating and complex challenge for an integrated design team — one of the most exciting in architectural practice.”
All his life, Lee knew he wanted a career as an architect. Or a lawyer. He couldn’t decide. But eventually, his Lincoln Logs and Erector Sets won him over. And with a father in the Air Force, aviation had a constant presence in his upbringing. Lee’s first aviation project was for the Salt Lake City airport. He studied the history, culture, art and urban design of the region, which heavily influenced his schematic designs of the project – all the way down to a parking lot mimicking Joseph Smith’s Mormon grid. The client loved it, and Lee now applies this approach to all of his projects. “What really cranks me up is solving someone else’s real-life problem and making the solution meaningful in a much larger context,” says Lee. “It’s never the same twice.” Throughout his 30 years of design, elegant detailing and disciplined organization have been the consistent traits of Lee’s architectural career. Throughout the life of each project, Lee ensures that a clear conceptual vision guides the work.
