Who or what inspires you professionally?

Great clients are inspiring. Without their commitment to the mission statement a project can lose its way. When buildings serve a bigger purpose, become part of the community, and bring beauty into the world it gives meaning to the work.

Bio:

Amanda Cronick, AIA, LEED Green Associate has sharpened her keen eye for design and problem- solving skills at Duda|Paine Architects for the last 12 years. She has a Bachelor’s of Architecture and a Minor in Women’s Studies from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.

How did you first learn about architecture and when did you decide that built environment profession was an area of interest for you?

My Dad was a residential contractor my whole life. During the summers I would spend days in the job trailer surrounded by architects and superintendents. Everyday was exciting and different and the houses they built made peoples’ dreams come true.

What do you do?

I am the lead programmer, project manager and architect. Daily we are preparing for client presentations, consultant work sessions, producing insightful design work, coordinating complex building systems, and documenting it along the way.

What excites you in the work you do?

Being on a project from beginning to end allows you to have the time to imagine the sublime and coordinate your ideas to make a building. When everything comes together through the practical nature of construction it feels like magic.

Who or what inspires you professionally?

Great clients are inspiring. Without their commitment to the mission statement a project can lose its way. When buildings serve a bigger purpose, become part of the community, and bring beauty into the world it gives meaning to the work.

What is your proudest professional accomplishment or achievement?

During the grand opening for the Center for Health & Wellbeing our clients and consultants wanted their pictures taken with us in front of the building. I will never forget this moment because it embodied a great achievement we all shared.
