Chris Stage, AIA


Design Architect

After earning a scholarship to the University of Southern California, Chris graduated Cum-Laude with a Bachelors of Architecture Degree.

At the Zimmer Gunsul Frasca Partnership in downtown Los Angeles, Chris worked on large-scale commercial and institutional projects. He quickly established himself as the in-house expert on 3D modeling, and less than one year out of school, he was offered the position of heading up the 3D modeling studio for the 100-person company.

During a ten year stint with KAA Design Group in Marina del Rey, Chris spearheaded a vast array of projects, ranging from the remodel of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art to award-winning residential design, master planning, themed restaurant design, retail design, and plans for mixed use developments.

Most recently, Chris has worked with EDC to create attractions for clients around the world. Working in all phases, from pre-design to construction and opening, his creativity has allowed him to be an integral part of the EDC design team, while his architectural background has proven to be a invaluable technical resource.
