Celebrating his 8th year with MHTN, Rui Morais brings a passion for the arts and a love of building things to the office. We asked him to tell us a little bit about himself.

Where did you grow up?

I grew up in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

When did you first know you wanted to work in architecture?

In Brazil you decide your major when you apply to the University. I was trying to decide between Structural Engineering and Fine Arts (passions of my from early on). There was a publication at that time that talked about different aspects of all the professions, and in Architecture they described as the marriage between engineering and arts and that settled my dilemma.

What are you passionate about and how does that intersect with your job?

I love to build things, and that helps me in many areas of the design process.

What do you most love about your current job?

I love to work on solutions for challenging design problems.

What are some interesting things about you? What do you enjoy doing outside of the office?

I enjoy to be around people and I am usually doing some social thing.
