Great leaders inspire greatness in others

Michael Edgar

Owner and Principal of Design Studio C, Ltd. since 1998, has developed a well-rounded and diversified practice encompassing residential, commercial and design/build work.  Since returning to Lake County in 1994 following receipt of his Bachelor of Architecture at the University of Southern California (USC) in 1992 and his Masters in Architecture from the Sasakawa International Center for Space Architecture (SICSA) at the University of Houston in 1993, he has completed over 200 projects within the Chicagoland Area. Both programs allowed Michael the opportunity to study ideas beyond the regional context of metropolitan Chicago and bring fresh perspective to his design and planning work.  He also participates in a number of local community organizations such as the GMLV and Waukegan Chambers of Commerce.
