A combination of Art and Architecture
I learned most
From patience
Patience is one of the keys to success and people who cannot afford to wait should not expect better results. There’s a beautiful quote that resembles exactly what I mean- “Greatness takes time. Just remember it takes 13 hours to build a Toyota but 6 months to build a Rolls Royce.”
Good Design Is
Fighting against the ugliness.
If Architecture is Music it’s
Jazz: Creativity that is based on openness, experimentation, and collaboration.

John Blasquez is a longtime local denizen with deep roots in the local community.  After a stint at the new School of Architecture and Design in San Diego he returned to work at his favorite place in CA, the Santa Clara Valley.  John’s late nighters might include some not-so-classic-rock but the proof is in the pudding and we won’t quibble about hearing Hotel California one more time.   Plus John knows all the best places for lunch.
