Raphael Soriano

Raphael S. Soriano, a graduate of  University of Southern California’s School of Architecture, developed his signature style while interning for Richard Neutra, Rudolph Schindler, and working alongside fellow interns Gregory Ain and Harwell Hamilton Harris.

Steel and aluminum were trademarks of Soriano’s and became an integral part of his work.
