Thursday, July 3rd, 2014

As I leave the great city of Chicago after the AIA 2014 National Convention, I am once again reminded that the strength of our national organization lies in it’s people. I am not referring to the national staff although all of them which I deal with regularly are exceptional. My statement refers to the AIA […]

Tuesday, July 2nd, 2013

As I sit here on the plane back home from another AIA National Convention in Denver, I cannot help but feel enthused about my profession and the people within it.   Unfortunately, I did not get to spend as much time attending sessions and seminars as I had hoped, yet the level of inspiration I […]

Architect Leaders

Friday, April 26th, 2013

Leadership is the capacity to translate vision into reality. —Warren Bennis This quote rings true to me when I begin to think about Architects as leaders. This is something that is part of the essence of any architect; our common ground. We all do this activity on a daily basis for every project. Yet the strong […]

AIAwesome Buttons

Tuesday, June 12th, 2012

I handed out some buttons to almost anyone who would have them at the 2012 AIA National Convention a few weeks back.  They showed up in photos, instagrams, and Twitter feeds.  It was cool, fun and it was a type of sub theme for many of my online friends during the convention. These buttons came […]

Virtual to Reality: 2012 AIA National Convention

Friday, June 1st, 2012

This year’s convention can be easily summed up in three words for me… Virtual becomes Reality. I have become fairly active in the online AEC community over the past couple of years. This convention was an opportunity to create some personal connections established online into actual connections made in person. Being in the online community […]

The following is a summary (& expansion) of my comments during the AIA National Tweet Up last week during the national convention.

DESIGN CONNECTED FORCES

Friday, March 30th, 2012

Design has a power to transform. It can change the way almost anything is perceived. Good, bad, cheap, elegant, efficient, inclusive… can all be descriptors of design.

    A New Idea = ABPi

    OK. So I have decided to start a new little project. A side project if you will. (As if I do not have enough stuff going at the moment!) I came by this ideas just the other day during a twitter conversation with a few fellow architects. I am going to borrow a format from my good friend @archy_type, who has […]
