Architect, professor, speaker and author Paul Lewis, FAIA, has bridged the worlds of practice and academia by producing award-winning architecture, interiors, books, and conceptual projects. His acclaimed built works synthesize design excellence and tectonic innovation, using inexpensive materials in new ways to engage methods of construction to maximum effect. Lewis is a founding principal at Lewis.Tsurumaki.Lewis Architects (LTL), formed with his twin brother, David, and Marc Tsurumaki, in 1997. Winner of a National Design Award, eleven AIA awards, Architectural League’s Emerging Voices and Young Architects Prize, Lewis has developed buildings that champion the capacity for design excellence to not be defined by expensive budgets.
