Patrick Paden

W8 team
architectural designer

Born in South Florida raised in the mountains of Breckenridge, Colorado, Patrick is a mountaineer whose passion for photography, 14ers and cycling began shortly after moving west. While exploring the world of photography, he was able to create a small non-profit to raise awareness of energy consumption. From there he pursued an education in Environmental Science from Colorado Mountain College followed by a Bachelors at the University of Colorado in Environmental Design.

While studying at CU he was able to explore different avenues of architecture, including small residential work all the way up to large scale urban planning. While working on multiple projects throughout the mountain communities, he was able to get his hands dirty and build one of the first eco friendly snowboards. With passions for photography and the environment, he hopes to make a larger impact now in the field of architecture with WORKSHOP8.
