Long fascinated with art and technology, Owen began his study of architecture at the University of Auckland. He then earned a Master of Architecture from Cornell University with a focus on urbanism and city planning and is also a LEED Green Associate. After leaving his roots in New Zealand and New York to join RMW in 2015, Owen quickly became an integral part of our growing corporate, advanced technology, research, and public design practice. He has played key role on many of RMW’s large-scale projects, including significant contributions to the design and construction administration for Uber, Prologis, Intuitive Surgical, and San Pablo City Hall.
Inspired by the juxtaposition of urban and natural spaces in the Bay Area, Owen brings a natural curiosity and collaborative mindset to the design team. Outside of the studio, Owen enjoys outdoor pursuits of all kinds, from hiking to photography to landscaping.
