Dwayne’s relaxed manner belies a passionate interest in design. He brings interests from many fields to shape his design thinking and ideas, retaining a curiosity and openness to learning about new approaches and architectural influences.


In his work with UAI, Dwayne has played various roles on diverse projects ranging from rehabilitations of scattered site housing in Brooklyn, new two-family homes in Yonkers and proposal work at a wide range of scales. Dwayne has been driving the design effort on a project that has been many years in the making, an afterschool community center in the Hamilton Heights neighborhood of Manhattan for the Brotherhood Sistersol that combines a dynamic visual brief with an extensive program that will allow the non-profit to expand their much-needed services to area youth. This project has brought to fruition Dwayne’s design training both at UAI and previously in other New York City area firms in the areas of commercial and mixed use buildings.
