I first met Ariel Madlambayan… when [Treanor] was selected as the architect for a new 170,000 SF medical device manufacturing facility project… They provided expertise and project leadership that proved critical to the success of the project.

Get to know Ariel

Who is your biggest hero and why?

My biggest heroes are both of my parents for venturing way out of their comfort zone as a young couple to a new country to plant roots.

What is your favorite quote?

“Less is more.” Ludwig Mies van der Rohe was not the author of the quote, but his application of it as an architectural philosophy still resonates with me today.
