Justin is an entrepreneur and a designer planted in the world of architecture and development. His work focuses on finding ways to draw the two together: architecture that unleashes new forms of business, and business models that change the way architecture is practiced.

With a family in the greenhouse business, Justin began his career as an entrepreneur launching two companies in the horticulture industry—Bloomscape, Inc. and uBloom.com. He then co-launched Teamwork Design as a business partner. Justin went on to earn an M.Arch. with distinction from the Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning at the University of Michigan. Professionally, Justin has worked for C Concept Design, a boutique concept design firm in the Netherlands, and for SmithGroupJJR, a Detroit-based architecture firm. He also co-founded Practice Space, a platform for gathering and energizing the rebuilders of Detroit. Focused on emerging opportunities for the alliance of architecture and entrepreneurship, his design work found a natural home in Detroit.

Trained as an architect, Justin gets the most energy creating a system for people to do their thing. Sometimes that’s a building, other times it’s a website or business model. It’s about creating an infrastructure that allows people to make a living practicing their craft. It’s part design, part development. Read Less
