John Chau AIA, LEED AP


John’s ability to integrate the unique characteristics of each project with its local culture and traditions results in responsive, innovative design solutions. Originally from Vietnam, John earned his Bachelor of Architecture from Oklahoma State University and a Master of Architecture from Yale University. He first joined LMN in 1993, and his LMN experience in the ensuing years was punctuated by periods of working with other firms in Hong Kong and Seattle.
