En-Motion Design is a full service Metalwork design and Fabrication firm. En-Motion Design was born to explore the marriage of historic architectural design and building stock with contemporary ideas of detailing, materials, and aesthetic. Our goal is to enrich people's lives through their engagement of these spaces that challenge and excite conventional understanding of what it means to habit space.
We believe that good design springs from an intimate and first hand understanding of materials and methods, and an open mind focused on pushing those conventions further. The Thinking of design cannot be separated from the Making of Architecture.
Michael graduated from Temple in 2002 with a Bachelor degree in Architecture. Michael has always been fascinated with all aspects of building, spending his summers in between semesters demolishing buildings, hauling chimney flues and CMU for masons, doing finish paint work, building facades, and tinkering with furniture. In his 3rd year at Temple he took a course called The Art of Detailing; which involved the design and building of a small café in the lobby of Temple's Architecture/Engineering building. During the course Michael learned how to arc weld, and his love for metals was born. The course irrevocably changed how he thought about design and construction. After graduating Magna Cum Laude from Temple, he was hired by one of the primer Architecture/Design/Metal Fabrication firms in the east coast, Veyko Inc. During his 6 years with the firm his ability to craft in metal was challenged, developed, and refined.
