Eric Davenport, AIA, CPHC
Architect
AJA Architecture and Planning

Mr. Davenport excels in understanding complex needs of businesses and families and provides affordable solutions to companies and residential clients. Eric has extensive experience in commercial, single family and multi-family residential projects and also specializes in environmentally-friendly architecture and interior design. He has worked on numerous local new construction and renovation projects including superconductor manufacturing facilities, mill renovations, new single-family homes, alterations for historic inner-city buildings and new construction and renovations for commercial businesses.

 

Architecture is a background for people’s activities. Good design enhances people’s daily rituals, and as architects, we improve lives by connecting people to their surroundings.

The statement above is meaningful to me because Architects generate designs by delving into what we as people really need, not what we think we need. Good architecture enhances daily rituals, our work, and our relationships when design supports our priorities.

‘Think simple’ as my old master used to say – meaning reduce the whole of its parts into the simplest terms, getting back to first principles.

– Frank Lloyd Wright

The Process of good architectural design is what has always, and will continue to intrigue me. Adding a room here… altering a room there… is that really the solution? It may well be. But more importantly to ask, what is the problem at it’s simplest terms? Start with the very basics and keep it simple. There, the solution will reveal itself.

In the big picture, architecture is the art and science of making sure that our cities and buildings fit with the way we want to live our lives.

– Bjarke Ingels

 

For me, the most intriguing part of architectural design is getting a building to function better than a client could have ever expected. Designing spaces that not only support the activity that is intended but to also allow flexibility for other activities is a crucial part of my design philosophy. Creating a beautiful building doesn’t necessarily make it good architecture – designing a beautiful building that improves the way people live, that defines successful architecture.

If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.

– Henry David Thoreau

This quote is meaningful to me because I can relate to being constantly full of ideas. The part where it says  ‘built castles in the air’ to me means ideas that are just floating around in your head waiting to be put on paper or  ‘foundations’. I feel it’s a very powerful quote because it’s telling you not to let go of your ideas and dreams and don’t be afraid to jot them down so they can become reality.
