Talking with Our Architect in the Space We Made Real

The Resonance Test 2: Eric Höweler

September 29, 2016

When Continuum started planning our migration to the Innovation District, we knew we’d need a sympathetic architectural partner. We were lucky enough to find one in Höweler + Yoon, a firm whose design ethos so resembles ours that we think of them less as vendors than long-lost cousins. This family resemblance is apparent the moment you click “play” on the latest installment of The Resonance Test, in which architect Eric Höweler and Lee Moreau, Continuum Principal, kibbitz about such things as designing for serendipitous encounters, the sexy-sounding idea of “design desire,” the ups and downs of submersibles, and Continuum’s eye-popping, show-stopping French’s Mustard Yellow floor. So click away, reader, and get an earful from cousin Eric.
