Jason A. Silva, AIA, is a partner and design principal with Dreyfuss & Blackford Architects. When he’s not building giant structures with cardboard, he’s challenging people to “think big”.
Few people are aware of the emotional impact of the built world surrounding them; it’s experienced viscerally. Architecture knits communities together by drawing people out into city streets, influencing how they interact with each other and their surroundings. Buildings and spaces affect people’s perceptions of and connections with a city.
