Taek believes a great design is a result of cherishing its process. Process is where stories are told, challenges are discovered, curiosities tested, and innovations achieved. A process-driven design promotes multimodal experiments through acts of making, and guides us toward unique, novel design solutions. His work experiences have contributed to many completed high-rise residential, commercial towers, retail, mixed-use, and cultural institutions in the United States and around the world.
