About the Author

David Stark Wilson, AIA, is the founder of WA Design. Wilson's lifelong interests in nature, mountaineering, and photography began to inform his architectural sensibility early on. Born in Berkeley, California in 1961, his early work was strongly influenced by Bay Area architect Bernard Maybeck but, as his design sense matured, Wilson's direction became progressively more modern. His current interests include using materials, form and color used to elicit the resonant responses we experience in nature, yet often elude us in the built environment. Ordering principles for a project borrow from their context and often metaphorically relate to the natural landscape. Wilson is the author of two photography books, 'Structures of Utility' and 'Above All'.
