“The most rewarding aspect of design is the ability to design with empathy. This means putting yourself in someone else’s position and perspective, and then working to understand and meet their needs. Architecture, like life, if done well is beautiful and unique, needing some direction and maintenance here and there.”

Cristian Macias

As a kid, taking walks with his mom through beautiful neighborhoods throughout Anderson, SC birthed a love for architecture in Cristian from a young age. Paired with an affinity for math, an architecture track was a no- brainer. He graduated from Clemson University in 2021 with a B.A. in Architecture and a Business Administration minor. Upon graduating, he immediately joined the DP3 Architects team and will be working in the hospitality studio.

The diversity and character of the team members at the firm are what gravitated Cristian towards DP3 Architects. He’s looking forward to taking on challenges and finding opportunities to grow in his craft. In his spare time, Cristian stays active in his church and CrossFit gym at Electric City Fitness Co.
