A Conversation with Jeremy Gardner
Jeremy Gardner, is the founder of Gardner Studio and Small Projects, LLC. He is interested in the renewal of spaces and places and is passionate about building a studio which brings together those that do, with those that draw.
Summary A great conversation about architecture and building things with Jeremy Gardner, Principal Architect at Gardner Studio, an Oklahoma City based Architectural firm. Jeremy and Sam begin the conversation around their similar upbringing, each growing up in rural areas on working farms. The callback to the farm life and connecting form with function roots this conversation as Jeremy talks through his architectural and entrepreneurial journey.
Gardner Studio is a collection of architects, designers, planners, and makers. They understand the built environment, believe in the impossible and thrive on community.
