Principal and Director of Design, Eskew+Dumez+Ripple | 2019 AIA Triangle Design Awards Jury Chair

From Eskew+Dumez+Ripple’s founding in 1989, these four core values - design excellence, environmental responsibility, community outreach and client commitment, have guided every aspect of their practice. The resulting diverse body of work—ranging from small, intimate interiors to large urban planning projects—reflects the firm’s broad focus on civic life regardless of scale, budget, scope, or complexity. Eskew+Dumez+Ripple is widely recognized for award-winning, innovative architecture and planning projects, grounded by a strong understanding of context and culture, which resonate far beyond the Southeast region. Housed in an open studio offering expansive views of the Mississippi River and the historic Vieux Carré, our New Orleans-based multi-disciplinary practice is comprised of 50 professionals who offer clients a deep commitment to every project they touch. Our firm size and management protocols are structured to provide hands-on principal involvement in every commission we undertake from conception to completion. Our firm also recognizes that creating better communities requires more than simply designing good buildings. As architects committed to the civic realm as well as a sustainable future, we commit our time to numerous initiatives that advocate for quality in the design of our built environment, including teaching, research, speaking engagements, and public advocacy.
