Every other week we highlight a member of our CGS team. Let's get to know Fijoy Fisiy, AIA.
Years at CGS?
What is the best piece of advice you have ever received?
No matter how much experience you have, every project is an opportunity to learn and grow. If you are not learning/growing then something needs to change.
What inspires you when it comes to architecture?
The manner in which people live their lives, come together in community, and interact with the built environment inspires me and my approach.
What made you want to work in the architecture field?
As a teen, I loved flipping through my parent's architectural digest subscription. Every new issue was an opportunity to fantasize about how I would draw my future house. Then I started "drawing" floor plans of fictional houses based on what I was gleaning from the publication. I knew then that I wanted to design houses - it just took me a few more years to figure out that for me, this meant architecture.
