Architect-in-Training Sten earned his Masters of Architecture degree at Montana State University in 2012. Hailing from the industrial regions of central PA, Sten has long been fascinated and involved with the process of making, mechanical concepts, and the built environment. He finds value in the reciprocity of the machine and the craftsman, and of Architecture and the community. Sten believes that some of the best ideas come from outside our industry and that a well-designed building sounds exactly like the roar of a finely tuned engine. He recharges with ink-and-watercolor drawings or gravity-fueled days in the mountains.
