People

 

We at DOWA-IBI Group are a diverse group brought together by our deep passion for educational architecture. Not coincidentally, we also like to have fun, both inside and outside the office. For us, that means every day reminding each other that our goal is to create learning spaces that help students thrive; that is what truly motivates us and makes work worthwhile.
