“Architecture is accomplished by and for people.”


Sergio Max Legon-Talamoni, Assoc. AIA, is motivated by his passion for engaging the complexities of contemporary society through architecture, inherently employing ruthless optimism and diligent rigor, dedicated to a conviction that architecture can awaken people and enrich communities. With a belief in an equitable methodology that is both collaborative and iterative, he recognizes that architecture is accomplished by and for people.

In addition to his tenure as a designer at Environmental Works, a non-profit Community Design Center, Sergio is currently a mayoral appointee to the International Special Review District Board, a historic preservation board tasked with safeguarding the cultural fabric of Seattle’s historic Chinatown-International District. He served as Vice President, Board of Directors of Architects Without Borders-Seattle during the 2016-2017 calendar year and was invited to participate in the City of Seattle Office of Arts & Culture’s Cultural Art Space (BASE) inaugural certification program, which cultivates leaders to gain capacity in cultural space development for the stabilization, growth and sustainability of community led spaces. A lifelong native of Seattle, Sergio holds a BA in Humanities from Seattle University’s Matteo Ricci College and a MArch from Woodbury University’s Graduate School of Architecture. In his spare time, he enjoys playing basketball, watching documentaries, and spending time with his three siblings.
