Profile Picture
As an architect and urban designer, SOM Design Partner Brian Lee considers himself a pragmatist in search of the poetic. He brings a hands-on design approach to his work—maintaining a full integration of the natural and built environment, and providing meaning to those who live and work in the spaces. Along with context, culture, tectonics, craft and landscape, a fundamental question that guides Brian’s work is how buildings enrich the experiences they engender. Lee’s award-winning designs include the China World Trade Center in Beijing; Poly International Plaza in Guangzhou; and the University of California San Diego Telemedicine Education Building.
