Nick Massmann is an Intern Architect at Imprint Architects. He is a 2011 graduate from Kansas State University with a Masters of Architecture and concentrations in Urban Planning and Sustainability. Nick has over 7 years experience with a variety of firms and project types doing high-end residential, hospitality, restaurants, and offices in Breckenridge and Aspen, Colorado; federal, military, public works, and mixed-use architecture in Washington, D.C; and data center, public works, and assisted living in Des Moines, IA. Nick's thesis project involved research and design of new urbanism and sustainable communities.
Fay Jones, an apprentice of Frank Lloyd Wright, continued many of Wright's organic principles but developed his own unique style, adapted from the horizontal lines of the prairie style to low-sloped lines of the ozark mountains. His details clearly articulate the many individual parts, but celebrate that the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. Similar to Wright, his designs emphasized an integration and blended boundaries with nature and open plans. For Nick, this style embodies some of his favorite aspects of architecture.
