A native of Zimbabwe, Tanaka has spent most of his life in different countries, including Botswana, South Africa, Bahrain, and Swaziland before finding himself in Oklahoma for architecture school. We’re fortunate he decided to stick around, and that he joined our Design Team ready to dive into an array of projects. As a Design Associate, he can contribute to many of our projects across the Studio. Like many of his Gardner counterparts, he has a green thumb and a home full of plants. Unlike any of us, he can complete a Rubik’s cube in less than five minutes! Tanaka is also a natural creator who enjoys spending his free time painting and visiting galleries.
