Work emphasizes the relationship between storytelling and the design of spaces; he believes that successful design is a thoughtful response to the culture and spirit of each place; at Ralph Appelbaum Associates, Maggio regularly leads teams in a collaborative design process to achieve award-winning museum interiors, visitor centers, corporate headquarters, and entertainment spaces across national and international projects; Maggio’s passion for storytelling and design comes from a lifelong interest in drawing and architecture; a characteristic feature of his approach is to link content with architectural elements, marrying complex narratives with spatial planning to transform spaces into emotionally moving experiences.
