Les Dykstra the founder of Architects-ldl designed and built his first building at the age of three, it was a tower. His passion for architecture drove him to become an Architect and from there he went on complete Auckland's Sky Tower and Macau Tower. In 1999 he established Architects-ldl which has designed and built numerous residential and commercial buildings. When Les is not being an Architect he is a waterman, he surfs, swims, goes fishing and spends time around water with his family. However, nowadays when he surfs he has to protect himself against infections and has noticed depleting fish numbers when he goes fishing. These changes are because of increasing pollution of the world's water. Consequently, he researched the causes and found that today's buildings are contributing to this problem. His research has culminated in his book "Aqua House" which was published in 2008. The book is about reducing water pollution by integrating buildings and water in new attractive ways. Incorporating ideas in the book, into their projects, is the focus of Architects-ldl.
