In Shaping Place, founding principals Turan Duda, FAIA and Jeffrey Paine, FAIA, are joined by the firm’s four studio leaders to discuss the evolution of their work and thematic underpinnings since publication of their previous volume, Individual to Collective, in 2013. This compilation of buildings spans diverse typologies to illustrate how the firm’s ideas on public space, outdoor environments, evolving working and learning models, and contextual sensitivity are universal to creating meaningful architecture. With chapters focusing on design for wellness, academia, the workplace and urban development, the volume presents the realization of the thematic roots discussed in Individual to Collective across a diverse range of scales, material qualities, structural systems and architectural palettes. Steve Dumez, FAIA, of Eskew Dumez Ripple, provides perspective on the firm’s work within the larger lens of architectural practice.

Turan Duda, FAIA, has helped shape the future of urban centers nationally and internationally. His leadership of iconic projects inspires transformation for universities, organizations, and cities. Before cofounding Duda|Paine Architects in 1997, he collaborated with Cesar Pelli across a broad spectrum of notable commissions. Turan is a frequent speaker for universities, professional organizations, and civic groups on urban place-making, the role of public space, and collaborative design methodology.

Jeffrey Paine, FAIA, advances collaboration and decision-making processes at Duda|Paine Architects. His leadership has brought millions of square feet of highly successful projects to life in the U.S. and abroad. After long tenures collaborating with Gold Medalists Kevin Roche and Cesar Pelli, Jeff cofounded Duda|Paine in 1997. With a “long view” of the impact of design on communities and economic growth, Jeff is a frequent speaker at graduate programs in architecture, real estate development, business and professional practice.

Principals Russ Holcomb, AIA; Sanjeev Patel, AIA; Scott Shell, AIA; and Jay Smith, AIA, guide the design and delivery of complex projects through analysis and conceptional thinking for Duda|Paine Architects’ corporate, commercial, cultural and higher education clients. Together they lead a studio culture that fosters innovation, teaching, and collaboration in the firm’s diverse array of project types.

At Duda|Paine Architects, architecture is an enduring equation of people, ideas, creativity, and technology. At the heart of their process is a workshop-based studio that conceptualizes, collaborates, models, draws, renders, works, plays and generates solutions. This amalgamation is experienced in the buildings and spaces they shape for clients and communities.
