Philip Ra, AIA, LEED AP BD+C, is a Principal and Design Director at Flad Architects. Philip’s passion for both architecture and technology has led him to be an innovator in the use of digital technology during building design. With more than 20 years of experience, he brings a strong background and a working knowledge in architecture, as well as an abiding interest in the ways that algorithmic and semi-autonomous computation can validate and strengthen architects’ design concepts. Integrating these digital instruments during the design process refines the design to develop optimal building conditions, enhancing the goals and objectives of the project.
