398: Business and Design Fluency with Arno Matis

This week, I’m speaking with the Design Principal and Founder of Arno Matis Architecture, Arno Matis.

Arno has over 28 years of experience delivering award-winning architectural projects in greater Vancouver and internationally.

A former Senior Director of Bing Thom Architects, he played an active role in the design and management of numerous award-winning landmark projects including Arena Stage in Washington, DC and the Sunset Community Centre in Vancouver, Canada.

In 2005, Arno founded Arno Matis Architecture (AMA). Located in Vancouver, Canada, AMA specializes in densifying coastal cities with modern spaces that connect to nature. AMA’s portfolio includes mid-to-large-scale hotel, residential, and office projects in USA and Canada. They strive for responsive, sustainable design solutions beyond the utopian that serve the present yet point to an unimaginably exciting future.

He holds a Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Oregon, a Master of Design Studies from Harvard University, and an MBA from Queen’s University.

In this episode, Arno directs that business lens to looking at architecture businesses, how the practice has evolved, the challenges, and how understanding the language of business has been instrumental in empowering their firm to be able to push the envelope on their work.
