Twice a month we highlight a member of our CGS team. Let's get to know Lexa Rio.

Years at CGS?
15 Years

What do you like most about working with CGS Architects?

The People! I love working with a group of colleagues so enthusiastic about architecture, design, and creating great spaces for our clients and the community.

What made you want to work in the architecture/design field?
I had the opportunity to travel a fair bit as a young person, and I was awe struck by the beauty and artistry of the buildings in places I visited. As I learned about the profession, I saw how good design could impact people’s lives for the better, and I wanted to be a part of that.

What inspires you when it comes to design/architecture?

I have always been fascinated by how things are built, from the broad concepts to small details of craftsmanship. I love how architecture takes the talent and expertise of so many people and creates something that is more than the sum of its parts. I find that really inspiring.
