This week we’re joined by Charles Di Piazza of Austin Texas, one of the architects featured on the AIA Austin Homes Tour 2020.
Prior to founding CHARLES DI PIAZZA ARCHITECTURE in Austin, Charles worked for two internationally recognized offices on projects ranging in size from a carbon-neutral city of 90,000 inhabitants and a skyscraper, to a retail bank branch prototype and an intimate gallery of photographic arts. He has been responsible for all phases of design and has consistently endeavored to integrate design with nature.
Charles believes buildings can provoke us toward better social interaction, a more open relationship with nature and more productive and upbeat lives. Another of Charles’ interests is sustainability, and toward this goal he strives to contribute toward projects in terms of reduced footprints, recycled materials and minimal energy solutions. He is a registered architect in Texas and Massachusetts and was voted Best Architect by Austin Monthly's 2015 People Readers' Choice.
