Hugh Soward joined OPN upon completing his Bachelor of Science in Architectural Studies from the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee in 2015. While in Milwaukee, he worked at the grassroots level with Beintween, an architecture startup turning the vacant “in-between” urban spaces of Milwaukee into public places to define and strengthen cultural and physical landscapes. His experiences helped shape his belief that great design is not just for the affluent, and is about building relationships within the community. He believes it is the responsibility of architects to design for everyone.
