Trung is the Design Director for OWP/P’s education group. Dedicated to designing innovative educational spaces that encourage student inquiry and imagination, Le believes there is a direct connection between the idea of experience and the idea of place. He creates spaces that promote casual interaction and dialogue where the exchange of knowledge and ideas offers students a sense of what it means to be a part of a democratic community. It is this design philosophy that has yielded awards from the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Chicago and AIA Illinois in his 16 years at OWP/P. His projects have also been published in Architectural Record, Contract Design and Edutopia. A member of the Council of Educational Facilities Planners (CEFPI), the U.S. Green Building Council, and the AIA, Le has also actively participated in the AIA Committee on Architecture for Education and the Design Committee.
