During the AIA convention in Miami we had the chance to interview Steve Dumez, Design Director at Nola-based firm Eskew+Dumez+Ripple, who received his FAIA during the event.
Steve is the “design guru” at EDR, overseeing the design of all projects from concept to construction documents, and according to the firm “his hand sketches in the early phases of design are invaluable”.
Steve, along side partners Allen Eskew (FAIA) and Mark Ripple (AIA, LEED AP) have been focused their efforts in the NOLA area, not only with their buildings, but also taking part on the initiatives to rebuild NOLA. Steve is also a Past-President of AIA Louisiana and AIA New Orleans.
EDR’s work portfolio includes projects in varies scales, such as the Prospect.1 Welcome Center (AIA Small Project Award 2010) or 930 Poydras Residential Tower, a 462,000 sqf project. On the videos below we discuss with Steve about their experience working on such different scales.
Other works by Eskew+Dumez+Ripple previously featured at AD:
- 930 Poydras Residential Tower
- Prospect.1 Welcome Center
- Dr. Nancy Foster Florida Keys Environmental Center (with Guidry Beazley Architects)
