My name is Willard Eugene Williams Jr., and I am a licensed architect in the State of California (C#33989) and Washington (#11350). My role with RONIN ARCHITECTS is the Principal and Lead Designer and Chief Technology Evangelist. My full-time job is with Rutledge Maul Architects in Seattle Washington, where I am a project Architect.
After graduating from Cal Poly Pomona I worked on projects ranging from data centers, hospitals, mixed use developments, luxury homes, and little of everything in-between.
Architecture has always been a passion of mine, since a very young age I have been fascinated by space, light, and textures. Some of the architects that have influenced my design language or Daniel Libeskind, Thom Mayne, Michael Folonis, Gary McGavin, and Ray Kappe.
Another one of my passions has been motor sport racing, and the heritage of Porsche racing, and the company as a whole. While attending architecture school I worked at Porsche Racing garage, Glenn Yee Motorsports, and learned a lot about material science, engineering, fabrication, logistics, leadership, building great things, and building great teams.
My passions, and my experience have brought me to this wonderful place which I am lucky to be apart of, which is one of the the old professions known to mankind; Architecture. My goal is to provide the people that I interact with the best of my experiences, to make their experiences memorable and amazing.
I look forward to getting to know you, and your passions. We can do great things together.
Willard E. Williams Jr., NCARB
