Podcast: Rainy Hamilton Jr. keeps Detroit architecture firm on track amid COVID
Hamilton was born, raised, and educated in Detroit – and built his business here in the city. He’s a graduate of Cass Tech and The University of Detroit Mercy. His firm, started in 1992, is one of the largest African-American-owned architectural firms in the U.S. He is committed to sustainable architecture and planning projects — and he’s remained committed to building up his hometown and preserving its history.
He never wanted to leave the city where he was born.
“I’m glad I didn’t leave,” he said, “because adding to that lifelong knowledge of Detroit just added to our ability to craft design solutions for any project that occurs in the city.”
