Matt Wallace, AIA, LEED AP BD-C, is an advocate for projects that embrace environmental stewardship. As an Associate Partner and a leader of Lake|Flato’s Eco Conservation Studio, Wallace’s recent projects include the Briscoe Western Art Museum in San Antonio, TX; the Comal Spring Conservation Center in New Braunfels, TX; and the pioneering Gulf Coast Research Laboratory at the Marine Education Center in Ocean Springs, MS.
At Lake|Flato, the design process does not start with developing a shape or desired form of a building, but rather a deep understanding of each project’s climate and context. The key to this process is connecting with the people, ecology and landscape where each building will reside. Wallace will present recent projects which speak to these connections and the firm’s mission to enrich communities and nurture life.
