Their dedication to craftsmanship. The way they translate vernacular precedents into present-day thinking allows for buildings full of integrity, permanence and longevity. It doesn’t hurt that they like to drink beers on Friday afternoons, either.
Out on the rivet
I wish I’d designed
The saddle. It has all the qualities that architecture should aspire to. It has no details or ornament to date it. It looks and functions better through time and use. It will never be obsolete and needs virtually no upkeep. It’s both humble and exquisite.
Preferred era in architecture
The Arts & Crafts Movement; rich in detail and materiality.
Materials that excite me
Ball point or felt tip?
Felt tip for cut lines, ball point for projection
Go-to unit of measurement
Carbs, cadence, then pints; in that order.
On my playlist
Anything by John Fahey or Joe Morello
I’m concerned about
