Ralph Raymond, Haitian-born Architect, artfully integrates architectural design and knowledge of construction technology into project delivery. At the very young age of 5, Ralph envisioned that he would become an Architect during play time in Kindergarten. His desire to improve the living conditions of his home country, Haiti, pushed him to obtain his license at a young age. Ralph is a graduate of Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, GA, where he obtained both his bachelors and masters. During his studies, he worked part-time at HOK’s Atlanta office, juggling both practice and theory. Upon completion of his master’s degree, Ralph quickly completed his ARE exams in 3 months. Although Ralph completed all requirements for his license at the young age of 25, he did not officially receive his license and registration number until 26.
Today, Ralph works as an Architect in HOK’s Atlanta office, where his career began. His myriad of project types, through all phases of design and construction contract administration, makes his experience instrumental. He is able to manage and implement artistic, programmatic, schematic, and pragmatic skills in the competent delivery of project execution. Proper communication and careful reflection and consideration of client goals aid in his understanding of a well accomplished design. He is geared toward successful design performance through rigorous means and methods. Ralph’s notable projects include The Center for Civil & Human Rights, Porsche Cars North America, Solis Hotel Two Porsche Drive, and Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport. His experience sectors includes Justice, Aviation & Transportation, Science & Technology, Corporate, Cultural, Residential, Commercial, and Higher Education. Overall, Ralph has 7 years of architectural experience, 3 of which as a licensed architect. Ralph is a member of The American Institute of Architects (AIA), The National Organization of Minority Architects (NOMA) and is an NCARB certificate holder. He serves as Board Director, Treasurer, and Licensing Advisor, respectively.
