Dream About Launching A Firm in Another Country?
Discover the story of Inverse Project founder Richard Hammond, AIA. Born in Zimbabwe, Hammond spent the better part of two decades in Los Angeles before moving to Costa Rica to launch Gensler’s office there and meeting Daniela Hammond, who gave him reason not to leave. Together they founded their Costa Rican firm, Inverse Project, and of course designed their own home.
