Eyes Fixed on the Future

Eva Maddox is a design superstar – consulting principal of Eva Maddox Design Strategies; retired design principal of Perkins & Will; and co-founder with Stanley Tigerman of Archeworks, a multidisciplinary design school that provides design solutions for social needs. She was inducted into the Interior Design Hall of Fame in 1992 and named “Chicagoan of the Year.”

Eva is a futurist with boundless curiosity about what will happen next. A significant part of her learning comes from teaching – at last count to well over 100 organizations. “I have always taught because of how much I learn from young people. It keeps me in reality.” Eva also says, “To me, acquiring knowledge is constant. She says, “We can’t know the future, but we can educate ourselves and share with students the kinds of tools they will need.” With Eva’s guidance and insight, these students will use design skillfully to shape the future, whatever it may bring.
