Ben Squires, LEED AP – Architecture
I was born and raised in Nebraska, and I will always be a Cornhusker. My Arizona adventure started in the middle of February, 2007. I flew down to Phoenix to interview with BDG, and I was sold. So as soon as I graduated with my Masters in Architecture I packed everything I owned into my car and drove to Phoenix. I am very fortunate to have found a company like Butler Design Group because we have such a great staff and great clients. I have grown so much personally and professionally since I have been here,and I owe it all to my BDG family. I cannot wait for the next eight years.
Architecture has been in my blood since childhood. Growing up there were two things that I could not live without. These were graph paper and Legos. By the age of nine I had designed and built everything from custom homes to skyscrapers… and the occasional spaceship. As I got older I was introduced to the greats; Wright, Johnson and Kahn. I remember reading Louis Kahn’s quote, “Even a brick wants to be something…” and my first thought was “Yes, it wants to be a Lego.”
