Q and A
Favorite HPS Project
All of them. Don’t make me choose among the children.
I learned most
When I felt like I was failing. When confronted with a daunting challenge, whether in design or construction, the key is getting past feeling like you don’t know and focus on finding out what you need to know. Then all the pieces of data fall into place like bricks in a wall.
Good Design Is
Like Audrey Hepburn in “Roman Holiday”—daring for its time, elegant as it ages, but always has the people at its heart.
If Architecture is Music it’s
A symphony, where the architect is the conductor and the orchestra keeps interrupting to ask how to read the sheet music or if they can improvise a few bars.
