David Lake and Ted Flato of Lake|Flato have, since the founding of their San Antonio-based firm 30 years ago, earned national recognition for a coherent, place-based approach to designing environmentally responsible and artfully crafted buildings that successfully merge with the landscape. By applying sustainable strategies to a wide variety of project types and scales, the firm’s architecture conserves energy and natural resources. Their work has received wide critical acclaim, most notably more than 150 international, national and state awards. As architects, teachers, community advocates and environmental stewards, David and Ted strive to elevate the public’s appreciation of architecture and foster the education of the next generation of designers.



Paola Navone is a citizen of the world driven by her extreme interest in the most widely differing cultures. Navone is a traveler, bowing to a natural inclination to cross boundaries. In her long and varied career she has switched easily between the roles of architect, designer, art director, interior designer, critic, teacher, and organizer of exhibitions. She works with brands of the Italian and international design world from Alessi to Poliform and Gervasoni with her most recent collaboration making news at Crate and Barrel.
