Salem, OR (Nov 16, 2017), Studio 3 Architecture is pleased to announce that Jim Toporek has received his Professional Architect License. He is excited to join the ranks of the professional design world and to use his dedication and energy to help positively shape Oregon’s built environment.

Toporek is especially passionate about helping businesses and developers achieve their best start possible. He strives to effectively utilize coordination skills, experience and artistry in every phase of his projects. Toporek was drawn to architecture by the social responsibility and client accountability of the profession. “It is a profession where designers are entrusted with creating spaces where moments and days are spent, where memories are made,” he said.

Toporek received his bachelor’s degree from the University of Oregon School of Architecture and Allied Arts in 2014, and joined Studio 3 Architecture that same year. Jim came to Oregon from the Midwest. There he worked as a carpenter while studying at Gateway Technical College in Racine, Wisconsin, where he earned an Associate Degree in Civil Engineering Technology.
