Award-winning LA Architecture Firm Relocates to Carrboro, North Carolina

December 4, 2017 (Carrboro, NC) – Architect Doug Pierson, AIA, LEED AP, BD+C, and environmental graphics designer Youn Choi --  partners in life and in  pod architecture + design (pod a+d) -- have joined the flurry of businesses relocating to the Triangle region. They’ve moved their architectural firm from Los Angeles to Carrboro, where they’re currently settling into new offices in The Station, the town’s 1882 train depot.

 

The couple relocated to the Triangle because they were ready for a lifestyle change and looking for excellent schools for their two children, Pierson said. They’d also visited the region many times since Pierson’s parents live here.

 

So why Carrboro?

“Carrboro has a vibrant community, a diverse culture, great food, and music,” he said. “Carrboro shares all the best aspects of the Triangle and keeps us engaged not just in town, but with Durham, Raleigh and beyond.” 

With experience in all building types,  pod a+d is a hybrid firm, actually.

Pierson, an award-winning architect, worked in  Frank Gehry’s Los Angeles office before co-founding his previous firm -- form, environment, research (fer) studio L.L.P. -- in Inglewood, CA. He leads  pod a+d’s architectural studio.

A native of South Korea, Youn Choi studied environmental design and architecture at UCLA. She worked with  Disney Imagineering and Selbert Perkins Design, an international graphics design firm, before co-founding  pod a+d, where she directs signage and wayfinding, interior design, and experiential graphics -- the orchestration of typography, color, imagery, form, technology and, content to create “environments that communicate."

Licensed in five states and staffed with team members who bring LEED AP and BD+C credentials to the table,  pod a+d  provides all  architectural services from concept design through construction administration. Their work has been featured in numerous newspaper, journals, and magazines. 

pod a+d's address at The Station is 201-A East Main Street, Carrboro, NC 27510. For more information, visit  www.podand.com.
