Joseph Valerio, B. Arch ’70, was interviewed by about his firm, Valerio Dewalt Train Associates. Valerio calls the firm – located in Chicago and Palo Alto, Cal. – “a company of generalists” where principals are expected to design, manage, and market. He goes on to discuss the UC San Diego dorm project Valerio Dewalt Train recently completed and how the firm believes that “before you decide what the answer is, you work with the client to figure out what the question is.” Valerio explains that this method means that he has to “work harder for every client than if he was simply following the QBS rules” but that clients respond well to this intense approach.
