Think + Create + Sustain


Monday, July 6th, 2015

Summer around here is often a very busy time. Since the majority of the design work completed around the firm is educational, summer schedules can be very hectic. The reason for this may not be apparent , but for our educational projects our documents and deliverables are usually due during the summer months to make […]


My Favorite Place in the Wild

Thursday, April 30th, 2015

My favorite place in the entire world? This is a very tough question. Difficult because I have not yet traveled to many places in the world I hope to see. Also because there are so many places already that are tied to emotions and meaning in my life. So in order to answer this question […]


Your Own Architecture Firm Pt II

Thursday, July 12th, 2012

As a continuation of the previous post regarding issues involved with operating your own firm, I am going to reflect on a few more considerations… INDEPENDENCE.

    Arch Postit SMALL

    A New Idea = ABPi
