"The premise that form complements function is foundational to how I approach my work. Function is informed by nature and human experience – we are both inherently part of and responsible for the health of our planet. Form exists at the intersection in space: memory – shared history; and imagination – shared possibility."

Diana Sung has more than 40 years of experience as project director, designer, and lead architect for a variety of building types, and has overseen the all phases of many complex multi-phase projects for the firm.
