Linquist Appointed Principal At EDSA

Bill Estes (Fort Lauderdale): Bill joined the EDSA family in 2004, and in 2005, became the first LEED Accredited Professional at the firm.  He continues to lead organizational initiatives related to sustainable design and green practices. In addition, his approach is rooted in the artful practice of giving expression to communities and believing that practice and consistency improve your craft.  He has a strong background in developing design solutions that are site specific, striving to meld the interaction of people with architectural elements. Bill’s philosophy is to develop a sense of community and urbanity that not only addresses the physical mix of uses but also explores the natural, cultural and economic influences that bear on design. His responsibilities included conceptual design, design development, construction detailing and on-site construction observation.  As a current challenge, Bill is managing EDSA’s work on a large, Eastern European resort community that recently won an award of Excellence from Florida ASLA.

His approach encourages the thoughtful use of form and materials to engage people while respecting the unique context of each site.  Ryota begins each assignment by determining the unique opportunities and constraints of the project, helping define the program and functions of proposed spaces, and animating these spaces with a strong focus on form and materials.   Ryota’s exposure to projects ranging from concept to construction documents and implementation, have provided him with an insightful understanding of design and as a result, his high quality work product is functional and implementable. Two of the projects he has been involved in have been recent recipients of FASLA Awards.  He is a registered Landscape Architect and a LEED Accredited Professional.
