More people should be so lucky as to spend a day with the Exleys, the spirited husband and wife team behind Architecture Is Fun. We recently met up with Peter, FAIA, and Sharon who run their architecture and design firm in Chicago, creating spaces for children of all ages that are distinguished by beauty, art, and form. What we quickly learned is that the Exleys make the design process “fun” because they’re great listeners and creative problem-solvers. You can't help but feel inspired by these playmakers.
