“The Fairfield project’s developer, Scott Greenberg of ECD Company based in Lincolnshire, Illinois, found Koo had “an exceptional grasp of aesthetics, but also of the technical aspects of what goes into a building.” So when Greenberg conceived the Wit in 2006, he called Koo. “I knew I was going to get something deeper than just bricks and sticks.” What he got was a design that reflects Koo’s own philosophy, touched by deconstructivism, which in its radical form created the controlled chaos of Frank Gehry’s Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain. Koo’s gentler complexities mix a building’s functional requirements with personal expressions.”
