Adam Goldberg, Associate AIA
Adam graduated with a bachelor’s degree from the University of Illinois School of Architecture in Urbana-Champaign. Adam’s interests in architecture are primarily studying unique construction methods and details. Additionally, he has a great appreciation for anything that can be made in a wood or metal shop. Prior to joining the firm, he held an internship with a high-end residential design-build firm in the suburbs of Chicago where he worked on projects for multiple historic mansions. In his spare time, Adam enjoys biking around the city, spending time with friends, and driving up and down Lake Shore Drive.
Will graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with a Bachelor’s Degree in Architectural Studies. After transferring into UIUC from the College of Dupage, Will spent his junior year studying abroad in the architecturally significant city of Versailles at l’Ecole Nationale Superieure d’Architecture. While in Europe he developed a particular interest in design focused on the reactivation of urban space. Upon his return to Illinois Will focused this newfound interest towards co-founding the now annual Student Design + Build Competition, which aims to revitalize unused space on campus. In his free time Will enjoys reading, discovering new music and films, and daydreaming about an eventual return to Europe.
