Long fascinated with art and technology, Owen began his study of architecture at the University of Auckland. He then graduated with a Masters in Architecture from Cornell University with a focus on urbanism and city planning and is 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 served in a key role on many of the RMW’s large-scale projects, including significant contributions to the design and construction administration of 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 the outdoor pursuits of all kinds, from hiking to photography to landscaping.
