Paul Wm. Moore has over thirty years experience in the construction industry and twenty years as a licensed architect. He grew up in Fargo, North Dakota, where he received a Bachelor of Science in Architecture at North Dakota State University in 1979. After graduation he moved to San Francisco, where he first gained experience in the profession. A couple years later, having moved to St. Paul, Minnesota, he continued his career at several firms, ranging in size from three to twenty-five. Paul is licensed in both Minnesota and Arizona.
Paul first moved to Arizona to attend a workshop at Arcosanti, an urban laboratory. He has returned several times for a year or so at a time, the last time as Project Architect on the East Crescent. While completing a project at Arcosanti, Mr. Moore met John Allen, Margret Augustine and Phil Hawes, the key designers of Biosphere 2, another project intended to inform the future about the relationship between people and their environment. He joined the staff on site and became Project Architect for the Energy Center. Both of these large projects contributed to Paulís interest in the shaping of our environments integrally with the natural landscape.
