Washington, A Work in Progress

I spent last week in Washington D.C. This city used to be a frequent destination for me to visit museums, take in the architectural beauty and reflect on our history as a nation. This was however my first visit in nearly nine years and it was a very different trip as it involved my 8 […]

Making Space for Better Outcomes

Over the past week I’ve made visits to a number of interactive agency offices and noticed something significant. All of them have a major part of their space under construction.The reasons offered by the senior managers of these firms as to why they are making this investment are nearly identical.

Many others suffered injuries that day and survived. What to do with that sacred ground in New York has been the topic of […]

Video Self-Portrait From SFMOMA

I had an extra hour this week between sessions while attending a board of advisors meeting in San Francisco, so I walked two blocks to the Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA). I really love this structure and was here while it was under construction, then came back a couple of times after it opened. The finished product […]

Buildings I Have Known

I have a keen interest in architecture. Sometimes I think I missed my calling by not becoming an architect. My father built every house he ever lived in as an adult, and it was such a benefit for me to be a small part of those projects. In his younger years he did it all; […]
