Patrick Lee graduated with a bachelor’s degree in architecture from Virginia Tech during the recession of the early 1990’s. Jobs in architecture were scarce, so a thoughtful professor suggested he go to Germany and work for the professor’s friend. After spending seven years in Hamburg immersed in German perfectionism at Carsten Roth Architekt, Patrick moved to Denver to work with Faleide Architecture Studio. For ten years he developed a full range of architecture skills. When another recession gripped the profession, a fortunate joint venture between Faleide Studio and Davis Partnership provided Patrick with six months of project design interaction with DPA, and ultimately a position in the firm.
Rather than dodging recessions, Patrick prefers reading, collaging, renovating the yard and house, and hiking the urban and rural beauty of Colorado with his wife and two kids.
