Office Building of the Future – Miller Hull’s design to be presented at NAIOP’s national conference

In a recent competition, NAIOP (National Association of Industrial and Office Properties) asked architectural firms to consider what the office building of the future might look, feel, and function like. Miller Hull's starting point was to consider what factors were driving changes in the way we work and look at the ways those have transformed other industries.  Congratulations to Miller Hull whose design was one of four submissions selected nationally to be presented at NAIOP's 2012 national conference. Amber Mauer of Miller Hull is a CREW San Diego Legacy Member and currently serves on the chapter’s board as the director of special events.
