Vince Avallone

Specialist

"This career strikes the best balance between science and the creative arts."

For Vince, planning medical facilities strikes “the best balance between science and the creative arts.” And it’s only gotten better as his career matures. “It’s evolved from task-oriented to strategic and process-oriented,” he notes. “Led by technology, it’s becoming an even more exciting, collaborative, integrated environment.” Vince appreciates that interplay of science and art in designs like Mies van der Rohe’s Farnsworth House in Illinois, a sleek, mid-century modern glass box with “an open plan design that allows the flow between architecture and nature.” Outside the office, Vince participates in both creative and athletic pursuits like photography, cycling, hiking, and dance, and is just the guy to help you master the Boot Scootin’ Boogie—he teaches country western line dance lessons each month.
