Aaron explores the myriad roles of the architect by challenging its classic definition. He has worked on a broad range of project types that can be found on four different continents—self-designed and fabricated furniture, curations, expositions, high-end residential and major hospitality projects. He uses design and design methodology to solve problems. His relentless curiosity is focused by rigorous process, believing that progress is only attained through honest self-reflection and open collaboration. Although he is classically trained as an architect, it doesn’t wholly define Aaron’s interests. He enjoys the miscellaneous, loves to draw and paint, dabbles with sculpture and may be found glued to the latest issue of the New Yorker, willing and welcoming interesting conversation or even a friendly debate should the occasion arise.
A New Yorker by blood, a Floridian by birth, Aaron holds a Masters of Architectural Studies from the University of California Los Angeles and an undergraduate degree in Architecture from the University of Florida, with a minor in Philosophy and English. Following graduation from UCLA, he joined Lorcan O’Herlihy’s practice and has worked with Arquitectonica, Rockwell Group and as in-house architect for Calvin Klein.
