About Us

Work sample photo for About Us section

We develop great ideas

Building17 is driven by Lee Patrick, a creative exhibit developer with more than twenty years’ experience working for globally renowned museums, nature organizations, and design agencies.

Our approach takes its cue from a spirit of inquiry to represent stories of our world, people, and beyond in ways that create true and meaningful connections.

To accomplish this, we follow emerging thoughts on design, technology, and engagement—with some fun thrown in—to create unique and novel ways of reaching public audiences.
