Cody Goedken

Cody is a member of the Madison studio after interning with OPN for three summers. With a passion for creativity, and further making that creativity a practical reality, Cody really knew he wanted to be an architect once he started thinking about college. And he chose the right path, because he finds inspiration in the way he can enhance life by creating experiences through spatial design. Making OPN history, Cody has worked in three out of the five OPN studios: Cedar Rapids, Des Moines, and Madison.

Q. What do you like about your industry?

A. I enjoy architecture because of the ability to enhance the spaces we inhabit and experience through a multitude of methods.

Q. If you were a cake, which flavor would you be and why?

A. I would be a yellow cake with chocolate frosting. Mainly just because it’s my favorite cake but also because it is very versatile.
