Andy designs places and spaces that engage the complete sensory experience – sound, smell, touch, and sight. He helped design the Beverly School for the Deaf in Massachusetts, which required him to rethink learning environments that were visually and tactilely optimal for deaf learners, as well as the custom sculptural wood reception desk at 600 Congress in Austin, the Hollywood Bowl Artist Lounge, and the office spaces for VRBO and Spotify. Andy also worked for a military contractor, analyzing and creating sensory-deprived environments for Black Hawk helicopter pilots. He has taught at UCLA School of Architecture and Ohio State University’s Knowlton School of Architecture.
Before joining Rios in 2011 he established and administered the Project Link program, an intensive immersion for high school students at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design.
