What’s your favorite DIALOG project? Why? 

The Arthur J.E. Child Comprehensive Cancer Centre. When the practice presented the video of the design, the concept behind the structure was very emotional for myself. 

What is an emerging design technology or trend that has you excited?

EV charging stations. With the increase in electric vehicles hitting the road we are seeing an increase in the need for EV charging stations. This is now adding an additional element to our site designs.
