BIO: Reuel Young, Principal

Reuel YoungMr. Young has been an architect in the Coachella Valley for 30 years.  His emphasis is to create places that support social interaction, foster a sense of belonging, are a memorable background to life, and are beautiful.  He produces design solutions that take their cue from the context of the project – they “fit” – and are sensitive to the user’s needs rather than to a preconceived design ideology.  He also sees “Sustainability” from the perspective of “fit.”  How we, individually and collectively, “fit” within our environment; how our values and goals “fit” with a healthy planet and society; how a building should be “fit,” well-tuned, well-proportioned, well-designed for its place and purpose; and it should create a context into which one (and many) fit.  His studies include meditation, biomimicry, and yoga.
