A strong advocate of design solutions centered on livability and urbanism, Ted understands that the ultimate measure of success of any project is how it connects people. His approach to planning vertical, mixed-use programs in urban settings seeks to balance the feasibility, entitlement, and place making attributes embedded in every site. Ted has championed the use of wood technology for its tectonic and carbon-positive benefits. His hybrid cross laminated timber multi-dwelling module has been presented in workshops and conferences across the U.S, including the 2017 and 2018 International Mass Timber Conferences. Ted co-chairs AIA Seattle’s Mass Timber Task Force.
