The youngest of eleven children, Race was raised in San Diego under equal parts structure and chaos, the perfect foundation for his professional endeavors. After serving a two-year church mission to Venezuela, he majored in construction management at Brigham Young University, where a fateful lecture by a team of architects and urbanists inspired him to pursue design at the graduate level.
To prepare, Race studied history, painting, and architecture in Florence and the surrounding regions. He took on classical design at Georgia Tech and completed his Master of Architecture at the University of Miami, highlighted by a return to Rome to receive further training in traditional architecture & urbanism.
Race cut his teeth at Ferguson & Shamamian Architects in New York, working on townhouses in the city and private residences in the East. While he loved his time in the big city, Race—along with his wife, Jennifer, and towheaded toddler, Charles—were ready for a change of pace and now call Montgomery home. He spends his “free” time consulting on design projects for his numerous siblings and searching endlessly for a hobby that doesn’t involve architecture.
