Q Sterry is passionate about the study of Architecture, the design of buildings, and the spaces they create. He believes that the most important aspect of Architecture is how buildings and spaces impact the lives of their occupants. Monumental historic Architectural achievements and cutting edge systems, and those who dare to create them have been particularly inspirational. As a result, Q is motivated to apply current science and technology to the design of buildings while searching for effective and efficient emerging systems. He believes that adherence to these principals will lead to well designed, cost effective, and functional buildings. However, Q is pragmatic and understands that predetermined budgets must be accommodated. Designing buildings that are sustainable, flexible, and custom tailored to each project's unique site and client is one of Q's primary motivations. Q wishes to create contagious and perpetual inspiration to collectively enrich our lives through his architectural designs.
Q believes that Architecture and the built environment profoundly impact and influence the lives of it's users and inhabitants.
"Shelter is one of the four essential necessities of life. Additionally, Architecture supports and protects our food, water, and love, which are the remaining necessities of life. However, when Architects look beyond the minimum requirements of life, we begin to understand that our buildings can influence the moods, behaviors, and overall health of their inhabitants. As a result, our homes and places of employment should not be merely structures created to protect us form the elements. As a result, it becomes imperative for Architects to design our built environments in ways that reflect, support, and inspire ourselves and those we love."
Q has a great understanding of the relationship between the built environment and it's user. It is with this understanding that has allowed him to design more harmoniously integrated buildings that support & inspire their users and inhabitants. In conclusion, Q believes that inspiration is the key component to intellectual & spiritual growth. Above all, this inspiration is derived from a continued commitment to the life-long questions; what have we been doing? and how can we do it better?
