“We are so proud of all that Forrest has accomplished and that others are recognizing his talents.  We look forward to big things for him in the FAmily!”, said Foit-Albert’s Vice President of Architecture, Gwen Howard.

Metropolis Magazine debuted the Future100 program in 2021, which is sponsored by CannonDesign, Daltile, Formica, Interface, Keilhauer, Rapt, Sherwin-Williams, and SOM.

Bridging the gap between the built environment and the natural environment is an important responsibility for all designers and it was great to see so many other students equally excited and passionate about sustainability,” said Mr. Rall.
