Aaron Dupont Associate

“Over two decades ago, I began work as a draftsman, an experience that started me on the path to becoming a designer. I enjoy all facets of architecture — residential, restaurants, mall tenant improvements, office buildings, health care, and education facilities — for me, all projects (small or large) are equally engaging. My strength is collaborating with clients, colleagues, contractors, and consultants to create an end product that we can all take pride in.”

Dubbed “the architect's architect” by his peers, Aaron's high technical aptitude, strong sense of order, and superb drawing skills make him a solid addition to any design team. With old-school values and a willingness to help on any project, he is a “salt of the earth” kind of guy.

Cory Harris Principal, LEED AP BD+C

“Design has been my thing, since I first laid my eyes on a Bang & Olufsen turntable at my best friend's house back in the '80s. Architecture school brought my passion into focus. Whether object, idea, or building, I've spent the last 20 years seeking out the delight and beauty that come from well-designed things.”

Cory's diverse experience spans custom residential remodels, multi-family housing, and collegiate athletic facilities. His personal training as a licensed pilot, combined with a background in large-scale architecture, highlights his unique contributions to aviation design and management at Rohleder Borges Architecture. He is as detail-oriented as he is positive, which is why clients immediately connect with him.

“I've had the good fortune to contribute to a diverse array of design projects. My experience with fabrication technology and design, the public art process, and community engagement informs the interdisciplinary approach of my process.”

Warren is naturally curious and collaborative. He draws inspiration by engaging with the local architecture community: teaching youth, curating installations, serving on community committees, and advocating for social and economic justice within the discipline. Not only is Warren an amazing person, but he is also a true artist.
