After receiving his Bachelor of Architecture degree from Carleton University School of Architecture in Canada, Chris’ career began in a small architecture office in Osaka, Japan. Later he worked for 12 years at well known design-build architecture firm in Los Angeles before forming Hsu McCullough, an idea born through the design and construction of their first home together with his wife Peggy Hsu.
