Abstract: David Lewis AIA is a principal at Lewis.Tsurumaki.Lewis (LTL Architects), a design intensive architecture firm founded in 1997 by Paul Lewis, Marc Tsurumaki and David J. Lewis, located in New York City. LTL's methodology of practice combines intensive research with a design approach that strives to make extraordinary architecture by creatively engaging the programmatic requirements, economic imperatives, and technological demands of the project at hand. Essential to this approach is the belief that architecture can and should intensify the social. We maintain that architecture is most interesting when it engages people and collective situations, and therefore we have purposely focused the majority of our work on spaces that address the public - whether cultural, institutional or hospitality based.
