Brian Oster is an architect. He is a senior associate at Cho Benn Holback + Associates where he acts as director of information technology and guides BIM documentation strategies through his leadership position on the Project Production committee. He is deeply committed to the creation of architecture that teaches, that asks questions and that is rooted in a strong conceptual foundation as a basis to define form. Brian focuses on using analogy and parallel or lateral thinking in developing ideas and finds discovery in how these ideas meet with real world conditions. He sums this up as “roots and wings” or “what can gravity look like?” His solutions to design challenges form architecture that has won numerous awards including the AIA Baltimore Grand Design Award in 2006 for the London Town Visitor Center + Museum.
