TODD COOPER

PRINCIPAL/ ARCHITECT

Before joining Lewis Himes associates as an architect and recently becoming a partner in the firm, Todd traveled the world as a global citizen and a member of the US Army, which he has served in some capacity since 1989 and continues to serve in the army reserves. His travels have taken him to Europe, Asia, Central America, and plenty of places in between. At every stop he discovers unique pockets of architecture and culture to marvel at and draw inspiration from. From the road side shops on the back roads of Thailand that use local materials to create unique spaces, to the historical classics like St. Peters cathedral in Rome, and the ultra-modern designs of Santiago Calatrava each having their own unique forms.
