Colin views architecture as a social dialogue – a conversation which takes place between built form and inhabitant. For him, this dialogue shapes relationships, structures activities, and elevates experiences within the built environment.
Currently, he serves as a Staff Architect on a multitude of projects across corporate office and education disciplines. Since joining Vision 3 in 2012, Colin has worked on the design and execution of projects including Roger Williams University’s Downtown Campus/Providence, RI, Coastway Community Bank Headquarters/Warwick, RI, Saint Raphael Academy’s Coutu Theater/Pawtucket, RI, and Residence Inn by Marriott/Providence, RI.
Colin received A Master of Architecture degree, magna cum laude from Roger Williams University where he received a commendation for his thesis “Layered Transparency. The Performance of Exposure; The Exposure of Performance.” Among many academic achievements, he was honored with the President’s Core Value Medallion for the RWU School of Architecture, Art and Historic Preservation.
Colin and his wife reside in Johnston’s Thornton neighborhood. He enjoys hockey, golf, and aspires to be a LEGO® Master Builder.
“Architecture has its own realm. It has a special physical relationship with life. I do not think of it primarily as either a message or a symbol, but as an envelope and background for life which goes on in and around it, a sensitive container for the rhythm of footsteps on the floor, for the concentration of work, for the silence of sleep.” – Peter Zumthor, Thinking Architecture
