RAY PAPA, Associate
EDUCATION: University of California, Davis, Bachelor of Science, Landscape Architecture
EXPERIENCE: Ray is one of the most versatile members of the team. Prior to joining Studio Green, he interned with Urban Rain Design and worked closely with Principle Kevin Robert Perry on a variety of successfully integrated storm-water management projects.
He has worked on a wide variety of projects throughout the Bay Area consisting of wineries, high-end residential, commercial and institutional centers. His daily attributes include interacting with clientele, project management, production of construction documents, design, and his biggest strength in visualizing conceptual designs through digital media.
Ray believes that design is an interaction of opposing extremes, conceptual and evident, natural and artificial, new and old. A balance of both complexities helps strengthen the design outcome, while relating to the needs of all living entities.
