Sam Iwas

Architectural Designer

Sam’s passion for architecture began when he came to the United States from Syria at the age of six. “I was immediately fascinated with the skyscrapers and wondered how they were constructed. After that transformative experience, I was obsessed with drawing houses”. This explains why after graduating from architecture school, Sam immersed himself in projects that allowed him to design not only residential structures but also commercial buildings. Using a wide range of design software and his experience mentoring design interns are just a few of his core skills. To widen his portfolio further, he joined M2 where he works tirelessly on a variety of transportation projects.
