Michael Wiencek is the President of Wiencek + Associates Architects + Planners, an architectural and planning firm that uses design to empower people and transform lives. He has a passion for making positive change in people’s lives. As Michael put it himself, “In our housing projects, many of our residents have lived in sub-standard housing all their lives. The children who occupy these spaces often live in conditions no one should have to live in. When we complete a project, our designs become a home and a community that the residents identify with in a positive manner. I believe this phenomenon transforms lives. It’s what keeps me coming to work each day.” Due to these ideals, Michael Wiencek has repeatedly proven himself a valuable ally to the greater affordable housing development community. Congratulations Michael!
