Loring Sagan grew up in both the Bay Area and Japan.  His exposure to the cultures and lifestyles of these two environments formed the basis for a particular point of view and a dedication to the pursuit of fine art and design.

Ceramics, painting, and sculpture were the original path with architecture following organically and naturally.  For twenty years his Sagan Design Group in Tahoe designed and built homes in resort and mountain locales.

In 1999 Loring began working with Daniel and together they formed Sagan Piechota Architecture to collaboratively pursue the art of architecture based on their compatible aesthetic and shared collaborative principles.
