Don DengAIA – Stockholder / Managing Principal
AIA – Stockholder / Managing Principal
Don Deng, AIA, has been a lead design principal at SBA for over 20 years and has designed an extensive number of international mix used, civic, corporate commercial and residential projects. He has been published in many professional journals and magazines, and lectured frequently in international settings. He contributes to organizations advancing the future of our professions. Though he is based in SBA’s Boston office, Don is able to bring his unique process and aesthetic to multiple continents through SBA’s “Ocean Group,” and often works out of SBA’s office in Guangzhou, China. It is not only Don’s cultural dichotomy that makes his ideas accessible to audiences on both sides of the Pacific - it is his compelling architecture, whose elegant and dynamic forms are the fruits of his rigorous and self-styled design process. Conceptually he does not subscribe to any overriding organizational standard or coordinate system that exists independent of his buildings. Instead of creating works that respond to project criteria, Don uses these potentially limiting factors as his design inspiration. Using idealized, pristine shapes, Don makes the abstract physically manifest. His design method is well-suited to the broader context of China, where dense buildings tend to compete for attention in an urban context. Don does not shy away from new ideas. In fact he actively seeks them out. A born risk-taker, Don thrives on the stimulus of change, even if, or maybe especially if, he does not know where it will lead him.
Don Deng，美国建筑师协会会员，已在SBA工作20余年，是公司的主创设计负责人之一；已设计了大量的国际项目，涵盖综合性开发项目、市政项目、企业办公和商业项目以及住宅项目。他曾在众多专业期刊和杂志上发表著作，并经常应邀在国际性的讲座中发言。他在推动公司和行业发展方面贡献卓著。Don虽然基于SBA的波士顿总部，但他却能通过SBA的“Ocean Group”将其独特的工作方法和美学观点跨洋过海传播至公司在全球各大洲的团队，并远赴SBA广州办公室工作。Don 能让太平洋两岸的观众都能接受其观点的原因并不仅仅是因为其熟谙中美两国的文化背景，更是因为其令人钦服的建筑设计作品。这些作品优雅而又充满活力的造型正源于Don严谨而自成一体的独特设计方式。在概念上，他既不拘泥于任何流行的构成标准，亦无意协调独立存在于其所设计建筑之外的各种体系。Don不是按项目的要求去创造作品，而是将这些潜在的限制因素视作其设计的灵感。通过理想化的质朴造型，Don将抽象的元素得到了具体的展现。他的设计方法适用于中国的大环境，即：高密度的建筑群存在城市环境中同时竞相吸引人们的关注。Don并不回避各种新创意理念；实际上，这也正是他的积极追求之所在。Don是一个天生的冒险者，即使前路未明，他能清醒地应对各种变化，并从中找到大步向前发展的机会。

Linda HaggertyNCIDQ, AAHID, LEED AP - Principal
NCIDQ, AAHID, LEED AP - Principal
Over the course of Linda’s 30 year career she has seen the deep emotional commitment that clients bring to their projects and has always felt enriched in the taking of that journey with them. Her career includes projects in many market segments locally and internationally and she brings that depth of experience to client relationships, team dynamics, and staff mentorship. She feels strongly that a projects design is the coalescence of a collective vision that becomes a unique physical space. “When I see a client’s donor program far exceed their expectations, I know that we have created a building or interior worthy of that generous gift. I think that emotional opening day is the most rewarding when a medical facility starts seeing patients, residents move into their new home, or students release energy in a new lounge.” Linda has seen how clients have often adapted to their physical environment and become desensitized to it and how new space can transform behaviors, foster new creativity, and transform how people interact with each other. She is committed to sustainability and the key principles that our physical environment should lead us to healthier lives, and where the impact of our buildings make us consider the limited natural resources we must safeguard.
