Parke joined Payette in 2015, bringing special expertise in both computational design and digital fabrication. He leverages his background in the building trades to expand the role of the architect -- strategically collapsing the architect/builder divide. Parke regularly uses scripting in the service of architectural design and consults on issues regarding complex geometry and methods of full-scale fabrication and material prototyping. Parke works across a range of projects within the firm to explore/implement innovative design strategies. Parke was previously at NADAAA, where he established their in-house fabrication and design-research studio.
