    S1 E9 | Mission Critical – Understanding Data Center Design

    S1 E9 | Mission Critical – Understanding Data Center Design

    In this episode, I speak with Adana Johns, S&T Practice Leader and Principal of Perkins & Will in Chicago. We discuss her career trajectory, her upcoming plans for the practice, and her design philosophy alongside much more.
    For any professionals looking to grow in the world of S&T design and architecture, give this episode a listen!

    Having grown up in a design-minded household, Adana is a genuine lifelong learner of Arch & Design.

    MEET ADANA JOHNS.
    Adana grew up in a design-minded household, drawn to various forms of art at home and school. By her teenage years, Adana managed her family’s greenhouse business, where she was able to exercise her design ability while learning how to listen to customers. By the time she entered architecture school, she not only saw the value of design, but also the value of providing experiences through art.

    Like many architecture students at the University of Illinois, Adana took advantage of the opportunity to study in Paris. This was an exhilarating experience for her, and she realized architecture’s roots in history. She began to view architecture as a storybook of people’s expression–how everything she sees, whether intentional design or not, blends into everyday life. Travel sparked her curiosity to understand how the world works, and how the logic, science, and art that make up the built environment evoke a sense of wonder and place.

    S1 E5 | Soccer & Sports Medicine to S&T Architecture

    I knew Mike and I would see eye to eye when he told me the most constant relationship in his life has been his love for Soccer.

    In this episode, we touch on Mikes entry into architecture and the challenges he faced. We discuss his growth and development in this space before discussing his design approach and his upcoming goals for his career.

    From a student with a passion for Soccer to VP of Architecture of an award-winning AEC firm helping Life Sciences companies usher in the next generation of life-saving therapies, treatments, and technologies; Mike’s route is an uncommon one.

    Uncommon, but fascinating.

    WHO IS MICHAEL MARONE?
    Mike Marone has more than 20 years of professional experience and has directed the architectural design and planning for many of Genesis AEC’s science and technology projects. Mike leads the firm’s architecture practice and is responsible for the delivery of architecture services. An intuitive and experienced conceptual planner, he has led the programming and planning of many significant projects through design development, constructability reviews, “value engineering” challenges, and other hurdles of a contemporary building project

    My architectural approach has always been responsive to the client with solutions that are not forced but successfully appropriate for the context of the project.

    Despite starting his career in S&T and remaining in this space to this day, Mike's longest relationship is with Soccer.
