Founded in Texas in 1985, but with roots in the field spanning three generations, Sago International Corporation is a firm offering architecture and construction services. The team consists of a father-and-three-sons core involved in all aspects of the creation of a project. Raul, a prolific Mexican architect and constructor, instilled in Erik, Jair, and Alan a common practice outside the United States - The role of the architect as the conceiver and executioner of ideas.
Having been born in Mexico and moving to Austin, Texas at a young age, the Gonzalez brothers subsequently studied architecture, following in their father’s footsteps. In the context of design, exposure to other cultures, have inevitably influenced Sago’s work: The simplicity of Italian design; the serenity of Japanese architecture; the masterful use of natural materials in Danish interiors; the tenacity toward new ideas for co-existing in the dense urban environment of New York City; and the richness of textures in the Mexican pre-Hispanic cities – all have added to Sago’s multi-perspective and multi-cultural view of design.

From graduate school paper to reality, the story of how Trinity Mountain Innovation's Squak Mountain Stone came to be is almost cliché these days. In January of 2003, while finishing up her Master’s degree, Aimee Quiriconi prepared an economics paper for one of her classes. The assignment, based on Michael Shuman’s book Going Local: Creating Self-Reliant Communities in a Global Age, required the students to develop a product or service that would could benefit their local economy. That is, find something in their community that is purchased from someone outside of that community and then develop a “substitute” for that item that could be made & sold within the local economy. This assignment turned into a business venture for Ms. Quiriconi and by the end of 2003, employing her knowledge in engineering, construction and research, she had developed a unique new product called Squak Mountain Stone.
